Facebook user poll: Privacy, please

The Wall Street Journal did a poll of 200 Facebook users (which doesn’t sound like a very significant number). Theresults:

If Facebook could tell your friends what you do on other sites — buying movie tickets, clothes, etc. — when would you want to share that information? Of the 200 respondents, 1.5% chose always, 30.5% chose often, sometimes or rarely and 68% chose never.

  1. The NY Times article today makes the Facebook idea of Beacon sound awful to me. Telling everyone what you bought? The final example of the Christmas present non-surprise takes the proverbial cake. They really need to make it simple to opt-out. I admit I am not a member of Facebook, so maybe I don’t understand the concept.

  2. Facebook is a beautiful website!
