Stung and chastened by an onslaught of privacy problems, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has promised to fix mistakes at the world’s number one social network.
In an email exchange with tech blogger Robert Scoble on Sunday, Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook has made mistakes and will fix user privacy controls.
Zuckerberg reportedly stated in the email that –
“I know we’ve made a bunch of mistakes, but my hope at the end of this is that the service ends up in a better place and that people understand that our intentions are in the right place and we respond to the feedback from the people we serve.”
According to Zuckerberg, Facebook is set to start speaking publicly this week about user privacy control changes that they have been working on.
Facebook is planning to simplify privacy options to please privacy critics.
Facebook maintains that users like their latest social networking options, but want easy ways to opt out of sharing personal details with third-party websites and data collection companies.
