A blog for 20-somethings

Your privacy is safe for now

Due to a ton of complaints, Facebook has backed off on its proposal to permanently house all data on a user, even after said user deletes their Facebook account.

Mark Zuckerberg released the following statement today on the Facebook blog:

“A couple of weeks ago, we revised our terms of use hoping to clarify some parts for our users. Over the past couple of days, we received a lot of questions and comments about the changes and what they mean for people and their information. Based on this feedback, we have decided to return to our previous terms of use while we resolve the issues that people have raised.”

I am curious to see how this plays out. If your privacy is a major concern, you may want to consider deleting your current account and sign back up when the terms of service are finalized.
