The WhiteGate™ award goes to Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook.
For those that haven’t read the article, Mark Zuckerberg is referring to all of his Facebook clients as “Dumb Fu##s” for giving him the private information he requires to create an account at Facebook. This occurred when he was a student at Harvard in 2004. When he created Facebook. This does not address the latest round of privacy erosion that Facebook is perpetrating upon it’s subscribers.
I have a simple response.
I deleted my account on Facebook.
Then I restored it and removed or modified any information I do not want publicized. It takes more effort on the part of Facebook to maintain an account that has erroneous information than it does to truncate a record in their database. It also erodes their credibility with the 3rd parties they sell the erroneous information to.
