Here’s a disconcerting tweet about Facebook’s attitude towards privacy, via New York Times tech writer Nick Bilton.
Nick says he asked a Facebook employee what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks about privacy. The Facebook employee laughs, then says “He doesn’t believe in it.”
This is obviously a glib comment coming from an employee speaking without attribution. So, it could just be a joke. Still, Mark has shown a lack of respect for user’s privacy in the past. Now, the Senate is looking into how Facebook protects privacy.
Bottom line: Joke or not, comments like this are not good for the ambitious social network.
