    • Facebook founder called trustingusers dumb f*cksBy Andrew Orlowski14th May 2010Loveable Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg called his first few thousand users "dumb fucks" fortrusting him with their data, published IM transcripts show. Facebook hasnt disputed the authenticityof the transcript.Zuckerberg was chatting with an unnamedfriend, apparently in early 2004. BusinessInsider, which has a series of quite juicyanecdotes about Facebooks early days, takesthe credit for this one.The exchange apparently ran like this:Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone atHarvardZuck: Just ask.Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses,SNS[Redacted Friends Name]: What? Howd youmanage that one?Zuck: People just submitted it.Zuck: I dont know why.Zuck: They "trust me"Zuck: Dumb fucksThe founder was then 19, and he may havebeen joking. But humour tells you a lot.Some might say that this exchange showsZuckerberg was not particularly aware of thetrust issue in all its depth and complexity.Facebook is currently in the spotlight for itsrelentlessly increasing exposure of data itsusers assumed was private. This is nicelyillustrated in the interactive graphic you canfind here or by clicking the piccie to theright.In turn, its fall from grace has made backersof the social media bubble quite nervous.Many new white collar nonjobs created since the mid-Noughties depend on the commercial value ofyour output, and persona;l information. (Both are invariably donated for free).
    • But theres a problem.Much of the data created by Web2.0rrhea is turning outto be quite useless for advertisers - or anyone else.Marketeers are having a harder time justifying theexpenditure in sifting through the Web 2.0 septic tankfor the odd useful nugget of information.Facebooks data stash is regarded as something quitespecial. Its authenticated against a real person, and theusers tend to be over 35 and middle class - the idealdemographic for selling high value goods and services.In addition, users have so far been sticky to Facebook,something quite exceptional since social networks fallout of fashion (Friends Reunited, Friendster) as quicklyas they attract users.Facebook also has something else going for it -ordinary users regard it as the natural upgrade to Hotmail. In fact, once the crap has been peeled away,there may not be much more to Facebook than the Yahoo! or Hotmail Address Book with knobs on: thecontact book is nicely integrated, uploading photos to share easier, while everything else is gravy.Unlike tech-savvy users, many people remain loyal to these for yearsSOURCE http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05/14/facebook_trust_dumb/ http://www.infowars.com/
