Facebook’s Ethics

A reminder:

Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

Zuck: Just ask.

Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

Zuck: People just submitted it.

Zuck: I don’t know why.

Zuck: They “trust me”

Zuck: Dumb fucks.

Nicholas Carson, “Well, These New Zuckerberg IMs Won’t Help Facebook’s Privacy Problems”, Business Insider

He has not changed, will not change, they will argue should not change, and it’s foolhardy of us to expect corporations to self-regulate and hold themselves to a higher, necessary ethical standard.

Disclaimer: I use Instagram and WhatsApp. I don’t need to quit these platforms to make a point about the company’s ethical bankruptcy.
