2009: Mark Zuckerberg claims Facebook won't share any user data with anyone the user doesn't want

in facebook •  2 years ago  (edited)

From a BBC interview in 2009, transcript to follow:

“So who is going to own the Facebook content? The person who puts it there, or you?

MZ: “The person who’s putting the content on Facebook always owns the information, and that’s why this is such an important thing. And why Facebook is such a special service that people feel a lot of ownership over. This is their information, they own it. “

“And you won’t sell it?”

MZ: “No of course not. They want to share it with, um, only a few people.”

“So just to be clear, you’re not going to sell, or share, any of the information on Facebook?”

MZ: “What the terms say is just, we’re not going to share people’s information except for with the people that they’ve asked for it to be shared.”
