Facebook Privacy Fail [Infographic]

Facebook Privacy Fail Infographic

Facebook is not looked at favorably by many people in the social media world and it almost always comes down to how they treat their users. Several times before their IPO they mishandled user privacy settings and information causing concern for the users of the network. Now that they are public, they have to feed into the bottom line for the stockholders, making these risky moves more appealing for them and scary for users who remain on the network.

Here are some of the biggest issues with Facebook and their privacy issues.

  • Facebook has failed many times with their privacy. The first big issue happened in 2009 when they reset their privacy settings without warning.
  • Maybe the most unacceptable failure on Facebook’s part is when they were caught in 2010 giving user info to other online companies.
  • A user satisfaction study rated Facebook at 61% and in the bottom 5 in customer satisfaction.

What is keeping you on Facebook?

Will you remain?

    I’ll stay on FB, only because I have connections there.

    Here’s the secret: don’t post anything private or anything you wouldn’t want on a billboard, and you’ll never have a problem.
