May 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has accepted that he has made a mistake and is working towards setting them straight. In the awakening of a serious crisis that had hit the social networking site some weeks ago, Facebook Inc. has issued a statement saying that their engineers are trying their best to formulate less complex and easy-to -use privacy settings.
The complaint registered against Facebook earlier this month put forward the fact that the private information of the users of the site were actually not private and were visible to a third party. The issue was serious and almost put the company’s reputation on stake. The latest reports on the Facebook front says that Mark Zuckerberg is sorry for what happened and will make amends soon. The new privacy policies of the networking site will be very simple for users to understand, promised the CEO. However he also stated that the mistake was not intentional, it was the company’s effort to take the social connections to a step further, in the process a big company is bound to make some small mistakes.
One of the most heard of complaints from the users of Facebook has been that they do not have an access to the fact as to who can view the information which has been posted by them on the site. In his statement Mark Zuckerberg underlined that from now on a user can view details of all unwanted visitors tapping their personal information. Ezra Gottheil, an analyst with Technology Business, who is helping Facebook in its efforts has also assured users that the new attempt will help to put an end to all complains against Facebook.
