[update: you have to check this link out. Matt McKeon a developer at IBM Research Center for Social Software put together an amazing image of a users exposure because of FaceBook’s privacy changes from 2005-present. While not completely data driven (see Matt’s disclaimer) even if it is 70% accurate it is scary.]
“Facebook has called an all hands meeting tomorrow afternoon, at 4 PM Pacific, to discuss the company’s overall privacy strategy according to sources inside the company.”
Many of the most recent concerns stem from the new Instant Personalization as well as a recent NYTimes article where FB VP Elliott Schrage responded to user questions about privacy (somewhat poorly I might add).
My continued hope is that they move to a fully opt-in policy for all future “enhancements” they make to their service as well as giving the power back to users should they choose to have a fully closed profile.
