Facebook - People Own and Control Their Information. But Fail to Apologise

Feb23

A few weeks ago Facebook updated their terms of service (TOS). Stating and giving the idea that all content you upload will be licensed to them to sue as they will forever. This was met with a total uproar. Facebook subsequently withdrew the new TOS. Mark Zuckerberg, Has since written a blog to explain what they intended.

“Our philosophy is that people own their information and control who they share it with”, Says Mark. He also Said, “In reality, we wouldn't share your information in a way you wouldn't want.” While this might be true, it seems a little too late.

What at I find disheartening is that there is no apology or no strategy on the way forward. I can understand that Facebook want to cover all the legal bases. But with such a wide audience, and such a huge Social Networking site, one would assume that they would have asked for help and suggestions from their users. You can’t tell me that their aren't a few good lawyers amongst the 175 000 000 users registered on Facebook.

Facebook seem to have taken notice. They have now requested help from their users. Inviting all to get involved, post questions and comments with regards to their new Terms of Service. You can find that here at the Facebook Bill of Rights. Interesting though, it is here that we do see an apology.

To read Mark Zuckerberg’s blog about the TOS, go here.

What do you think? Are you going to get involved in the New TOS? Share your thoughts with us.
