CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s unveiling of Facebook Home worries Om Malik:
It is time to ask for simple, granular and easy to understand privacy and data collection policies from Facebook, especially for mobile. We need to ask our … representatives to understand that Facebook wants to go from our desktops and browsers right into our home — the place where we need to be private.
The announcement provides three more reasons to worry about Facebook:
- Zuckerberg grinds forward like a fly that won’t go away. Dogged iteration is both bothersome and inspiring. His professional growth is noteworthy.
- Facebook Home allows even deeper data-dives into the private parts of your online shorts and knickers than ever before.
- Only your okay stands between Facebook’s and Zuckerberg’s plan. And you’ll probably buckle.
We give Facebook content for free … because we all want Facebook to scrape more of our data … to achieve its strategies.
Facebook stock finished more than 3 percent higher on the news.
Wall Street liked the announcement.
