Zucked Over

Julia Carrie Wong was among the first Facebook users at Harvard 14 years ago. She writes of her regrets in The Guardian today. But she has some choice words for Mark Zuckerberg, whose hypocrisy on privacy should be better known:

In the intervening years, I’ve learned that Zuckerberg values his own privacy so much that he has security guards watching his trash, that he bought four houses surrounding his own house to avoid having neighbors, that he sued hundreds of Hawaiians to sever their claim to tiny plots of land within his massive Kauai estate, and that he secretly built tools to prevent further private messages from coming back to haunt him.

What I haven’t learned, or seen any sign of, is that he has changed his opinion of the intelligence of his users. It’s Zuckerberg’s world, and we’re all just a bunch of dumb fucks living in it.

You’ll need to read the piece to understand why she deployed the obscenity at the end.
