A blog for 20-somethings

Your Facebook information will not be saved for future use

February

CEO and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, appeared on the TODAY show with Meredith Vieira yesterday. The goal of the interview was to clear up controversy surrounding a change of their terms of service last week. The change claimed ownership of members’ personal data and postings, even after they cancel their Facebook memberships.

“Frankly, we made a mistake in the last version and issued some unclear language,” Zuckerberg told Lauer. “Our intent is that people own their own information. One of the things that makes Facebook really special is it’s a service that people are using to put up information that they want to share with people that often is very personal, private, intimate.”

If a member decides to leave Facebook and takes down his or her page, he added, “None of that information will be shared with anyone going forward.”

Chalk up one for the good guys.
