A letter from Mark Zuckerberg

Interesting article, here, on privacy in Facebook. Great to see some admission around not providing proper privacy which was a big problem for a lot of people, for a long time. Great to hear Facebook taking feedback and worked hard to improve their platform. In this new world of social profiles, real time aggregation and location based GPS advances expect the public to demand far more secure networks with huge levels of tailorisation in their privacy settings. Also, expect governments and the EU to follow suit.

"Somehow we missed this point with News Feed and Mini-Feed and we didn't build in the proper privacy controls right away. This was a big mistake on our part, and I'm sorry for it. But apologizing isn't enough. I wanted to make sure we did something about it, and quickly. So we have been coding nonstop for two days to get you better privacy controls. This new privacy page will allow you to choose which types of stories go into your Mini-Feed and your friends' News Feeds, and it also lists the type of actions Facebook will never let any other person know about. If you have more comments, please send them over."
