Stir over privacy.

Quote:
One privacy advocate contends Facebook is pushing users to expect less privacy.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's contention last week that privacy is becoming less important to online users caused a stir across the Internet and among privacy advocates.
Zuckerberg told an audience at the 2009 Crunchies Awards ceremonies in San Francisco on Friday that social norms are changing and people don't expect or want nearly as much privacy as they have in the past.
"When we got started, the question people asked was, 'Why would I want to put any information on the Internet?'," he said during the presentation of awards to top online startups and makers of innovative technology.

Of course that is the message that he will give. After all, Facebook and other social apps are about sharing information. The problem is that young teens may not realize that posting provocative pictures of themselves as well as too much personal information may make them a target of predators. We've all heard the story about the Woman loses benefits over Facebook pics. I'm sure that won't be the last of it.

There is also the risk of identity theft. It's worth noting that Facebook just recently added privacy options which give the user much greater control over how data is shared. It's now possible to really restrict access.
