Yes, Mark Zuckerberg Shares His Profile

Want to see photos that Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook, has been tagged in? Want to see his latest status updates? Now you can. The media has been obsessed with it all day, some of which have even suggested that Mark Zuckerberg must not understand the new privacy settings. They would be wrong as Zuckerberg’s new privacy settings are a statement about how people are becoming more public with their profile information.

As Barry Schnitt told Marshall Kirkpatrick of ReadWriteWeb, “becoming less private and more public is ‘a change just like it was a change in 2006 when Facebook became more than just people from colleges’.” With the new transition tool recommending that users share more information with others, it’s not surprising that Mark Zuckerberg would make a statement by sharing more information as well.
