Minyanville reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has bought four houses surrounding his current house, perhaps to increase his privacy. And in interesting contrast, according to the report, Facebook is reducing the privacy of people who don’t want to be found by just anyone in search.
1. Mark Zuckerberg may want his privacy? Dude, you’re not Kris Jenner or Miley Cyrus. You could put a 24/7 web cam of your living room on Instagram, and we would want to watch it about as much as anyone wants to read the continuously changing Facebook legal privacy terms.
2. Hey, you know when Facebook does that thing where you send someone a mobile message, and it also sends that person a map showing where you are? Have you ever considered that today’s lying teenagers can’t just buy their neighbors’ houses to fix problems that arise from this? So when Suzie tells her mom not to worry on Facebook, because she is at Jenny’s house doing homework, when really she’s at your neighbor’s illegal house party (that everyone planned on Twitter, Tumblr, and Keek), do you really think this will make Facebook more popular than other social networks?
3. Speaking of privacy, you know when those mobile red notifications that pop up to never notify us of anything we want to know, can you tell us how to make those stop? The current method of: good luck with that is resulting in us ignoring those bubbles interrupting our private moments being enjoyed by not reading Facebook’s terms of service.
