Facebook has recently unveiled some changes to their service users offer more sharing options, but in the process, the company has demonstrated what many believe is the deliberate indifference to the privacy of users.
This error is very similar to the Facebook disaster in February 2009, when the company changed to a "get everything and do not give" permission order that the company has given the right to use, in perpetuity, all the information from Users share the site. Users rebelled and Facebook retreated immediately.
Facebook error is twofold. First, Facebook's default privacy settings are not new friends, friends of friends or Facebook, but the entire Internet. Secondly, Facebook does not provide a card for the easy way, as in the 50 privacy settings navigation of more than 170 privacy options to choose from.
Users confused about the default, and how they change, along with the dull explanations of the benefits of the new changes, created the usual excitement we have every time Facebook fits our home away from home should be expected.
Unfortunately for Facebook, this update also what analysts created an increase in the number of users you suspect want to delete their Facebook accounts. The number of searches increased dramatically for the fact that "Deleting my Facebook account [sic]" because the changes announced and a mass exit from Facebook is scheduled for May 31
Nothing on the web is free
Facebook has over 400 million users, and after the mass exit, the site will have more than 400 million users.
Facebook's changes were part of Facebook's inevitable strategic monetization. Nothing about Facebook is free. Facebook has never been in the game, not to make money. Facebook will achieve the necessary balance between their bottom line and their users. For those for whom this is a bad thing, Facebook is not the right place. Profile information is valuable information for online marketers, and not a single web service has more information like Facebook. Facebook will continue its course to use this information to earn money to stay in business and continue to provide users with services recorded in herds.
Critics are right: Facebook wants to make a lot of money. But they can only do this if the users are satisfied.
