Mark Zuckerberg is experiencing the tough time, the project of his life is under fire for breaching of privacy. During an interview with CNN, he took responsibility for Facebook’s policies that enabled an app to gain access to the personal information of 50 million users without their consent. Of course, Marc has been apologising but it’s too late.
Mark Zuckerberg apologized for the Cambridge Analytica scandal, if “sorry” is one of the hardest words to say, the billionaire seems to have no problems uttering it. The Facebook founder has been quick to offer up a mea culpa when trying to placate irate users. Talking to CNN on Wednesday, Mark took the responsibility with the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Zuckerberg confirmed his social network’s policies that enabled an app to gain access to the personal information of 50 million users without their consent, and that was totally wrong:
“This was a major breach of trust, and I’m really sorry that this happened,”
the FB founder said on Wednesday night. Probably, Facebook has failed?
Does Facebook have a future?
Facebook was created as a genuine and cool app to connect the world, but the world is changing too fast. Despite all efforts on modernizing and improving the social network, Facebook is no longer a platform for connecting people, it’s a platform for monetizing the connections they make on their own. The company simply doesn’t prioritize the quality of these connections themselves in any meaningful way.
The scandal with the Cambridge Analytica questioned whether the social network has the future. On Wednesday, after five days and a statement that initially failed to mention the word, Mark Zuckerberg said sorry for the Cambridge Analytica data storm that has hit Facebook.
“We have a basic responsibility to protect people’s data and if we can’t do that then we don’t deserve to have the opportunity to serve people,”
said Mark but Facebook precedent showed the vulnerability of any social network.
