'Although it has only been around for 15 years, Facebook has certainly made its mark on the world and how it functions. For many of its 2.27 billion users, life before Facebook is nothing but a distant memory. An entire generation of people looks to the social media giant to find friends and connect with family, and millions of people rely on its news feed to remain up to date in an ever-changing world.
When more than a quarter of the world’s population is entrusting you with their information there is a huge level of responsibility to protect their privacy. But, while Facebook has been happy to rack up billions in profits, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been oblivious to this massive responsibility.
Since just two years after the birth of the company, Facebook has been dealing with one privacy crisis after the other. While Zuckerberg has publicly vowed to build “a privacy-focused messaging and social networking platform,” in reality, the company has consistently made decisions which reinforce the perception that its users have no right to expect privacy or protection of their personal information.
Now, Facebook’s lawyers have gone on the record to confirm that stance publicly, stating in court, “There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy.”
Facebook a “digital town square”
Most of Facebook’s users probably believe that they have the right to expect that their private information will remain private. That is not how Facebook sees it, however. As reported by Big League Politics, the company’s attorney, Orin Snyder, recently argued in court that Facebook is “a digital town square” where users – whether they are aware of it or not – voluntarily surrender their private information.'
