Facebook vs googleplus

  1. 1. Facebook vs Google+ Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br /><ul><li>Facebook gets a lot of flack about how they manage their users’ privacy
  2. 2. I’ve tested the following sharing scenarios with 3 different Facebook accounts & 3 different Google+ accounts
  3. 3. Real life example of the google+ scenario can be found here http://siliconfilter.com/google-engineer-google-is-a-prime-example-of-our-complete-failure-to-understand-platforms/ </li></li></ul><li>Facebook vs Google+ Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br />B<br />A<br />X<br />A<br />C<br />X<br />B,C,D<br />A<br />X<br />A has a list/circle with B, C & D in it. <br />A shares X to the list/circle<br />B, C, & D can see the content<br />D<br />Obviously facebook and google+ have the same behavior<br />A<br />X<br />
  4. 4. Google+ Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br />C<br />B<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />D<br />C,D, Z<br />A<br />X<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />B has a circle with C, D & Z in it. <br />B re-shares A’s post to the circle<br />Google will say “This post was originally shared with a limited audience – remember to be thoughtful about who you share it with.” and still let you re-share the post, even to a wider audience<br />Z<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />
  5. 5. Facebook Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br />C<br />B<br />A<br />X<br />via<br />B<br />D<br />C,D, Z<br />A<br />X<br />A<br />X<br />via<br />B<br />B has a list with C, D & Z in it. <br />B re-shares A’s post to the list<br />C & D can see the post, but since Z isn’t in A’s original list to whom the post was visible to, Z cannot see the post<br />Z<br />
  6. 6. But wait there’s more!<br />
  7. 7. Google+ Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br />C<br />A<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />D<br />X<br />maybe change X, nah I’ll delete<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />A realized he made a mistake anddecides to delete/modify X<br />If A modified X, C, D, Z still sees A’s post in it’s original form<br />If A deleted X, C,D,Z can still see X<br />Z<br />A<br />X<br />B<br />
  8. 8. Facebook Sharing/Privacy Implementation<br />C<br />A<br />X<br />D<br />B,C,D<br />X<br />X<br />A realized he made a mistake anddecides to delete/modify X<br />If A modified X so now only B,C can see the post, D will no longer see the post<br />If A deleted X, the post ceases to exist in everyone’s news feed<br />Z<br />
  9. 9. In conclusion…<br /><ul><li>To all those who keep wailing about facebook’s changes, cut them some slack, they actually spend time to implement things the way they should
  10. 10. Learn to use the tools, know what you can and can’t do
  11. 11. Be responsible with what you post online</li>
