Facebook CEO Mocked Users

Turns out Facebook’s privacy problems might have been sown at the beginning: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mocked Facebook’s users’ privacy when the company was a small startup and he was a 19-year-old at Harvard. In an online chat transcript obtained by Business Insider, Zuckerberg brags to a friend that his website has “over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS.” When asked, “How’d you manage that one?” he replies: “People just submitted it … I don’t know why … They ‘trust me’ … Dumb fucks.” Business Insider writes, “Could Mark have been completely joking? Sure. But the exchange does reveal that Facebook's aggressive attitude toward privacy may have begun early on.”
