Washington, D.C. (WiredPRNews.com) – Facebook is reportedly expected to address privacy concerns regarding a recent announcement of information sharing changes for the site. As reported by PC World, officials in the company have stated it will work with lawmakers in addressing proposed issues.
Elliot Schrage, Facebook vice president of global communications, marketing and public policy, is quoted in the report as stating of concerns following the company’s announcement of a user personalization initiative last week, “There’s been a lot of confusion about this… Facebook doesn’t impose connection and sharing. Users join a community when they join Facebook, and the size and openness of that community is completely within their control.”
Schrage is further quoted as stating, “Facebook is all about sharing information… Sharing information is, at some level, antithetical to secrecy, antithetical to the idea of privacy. We believe that we bridge the divide between sharing and privacy through the vehicle of [user] control.”
