Mashable has just published a post titled “Nobody Can Stop Facebook Because Nobody Understands Facebook“. There is an interesting sentence in this post:

Have the nuances of online privacy become so complex that they’re beyond the comprehension of mere mortals? I’m not saying that Facebook has any intent to cause confusion, but the complexities of the open vs closed debate and the prescriptive vs descriptive nature of the “everybody” setting effectively act to shut down public discourse.

I agree that it has not become easier to control privacy specially in the scope of Facebook. I do not really know what data which I publish on Facebook stays there, do you know? Actually when posting on Facebook I keep in mind that everything that I provide is for anybody to use. This you should also keep in mind when you act on Facebook.

A very interesting approach which leads to the question if people want if all of their data is available publicly? I personally do not.

Here is the interview of Zuckerberg:
