Privacy Pique

"The most frustrating thing about Facebook's privacy policy is that it's always changing," writes Farhad Manjoo. The company should better respect users' desire for privacy going forward.

“The most frustrating thing about Facebook’s privacy policy is that it’s always changing,” writes Farhad Manjoo. “You used to be able to keep your profile picture private; that’s no longer an option. You also used to be able to declare your interests without being ‘connected’ to a Facebook page about that interest—now you can’t. Things like this should never happen. Instead, if you’ve set your profile to remain ‘semi-private,’ all of the site’s changes going forward should respect that choice.”
