Gary Vaynerchuk Doesn't Care About Facebook Privacy Issues
Author and Wine Library TV star Gary Vaynerchuk isn't worried about the Facebook privacy issues that everybody on the Internet has been whining about lately. Or, rather, he "respects" and "understands" them, but he's not about to start worrying.
"Facebook is going to adjust," Vaynerchuk says. "Do I have to mention Beacon?" He's got a good point. Although Mark Zuckerberg may think the age of privacy is over, his users clearly don't.
If Facebook wants to keep their users happy (and, more importantly, logged in) they're going to have to make some changes, or, at the very least, spell out the existing policies clearer for people who are wary skeptical of sharing information through the site.
Of course, Vaynerchuk is a public persona. He's made a lot of money by broadcasting his personality on the Internet. He probably has more to gain from sharing himself on Facebook than the average person. But not everyone wants to live in public.
