Zuckerberg Strikes Again

by Hannah Sinclair | 28.11.2012

Last week Facebook announced news that they would be obtaining user data from affiliate partners, such as Instagram, to improve the quality and relevancy of ads shown whilst on Facebook.

The recent plans diminish a users ability to vote on changes to its privacy policy. It has also been insinuated that there will be changes to settings within Facebook’s private messaging service which could lead to a rise in spam throughout the social network.

When Facebook initially bought Instagram earlier in 2012 it was adamant that Facebook and Instagram would remain independent. The recent change means that the two would combine and share data freely between the separate entities.

Again, this has sparked numerous complaints and accusations of the social network disregarding users right to privacy. However, I can’t help but think that Zuckerberg is growing slightly immune to these repeated outbursts.
