Facebook Reading Packet 1. An Open Letter from Mark Zuckerberg a. Goal: help people understand what was going on in their world by creating an environment where people could Free Flow of Information on the Internet, because It helps people share information with the people they want to share it with. 2. Thoughts on Beacon a. Beacon tries to help people share information with their friends about things they do on the web. b. Goal: build a simple product to let people share information across sites with their friends. c. Facebook has succeeded so far in part because it gives people control over what and how they share information. This is what makes Facebook a good utility, and in order to be a good feature, Beacon also needs to do the same. d. People need to be able to explicitly choose what they share, and they need to be able to turn Beacon off completely if they don't want to use it. 3. Facebook Retreats on Online Tracking a. If Facebook were to implement a policy whereby no private purchases on other Web sites were displayed publicly on Facebook without a user's explicit permission, that would be a step in the right direction.
