Facebook co-founder wants some privacy from social media

The Globe & Mail

Co-founder of Facebook, creator of my.barackobama.com talked about privacy and social media in a meeting in Toronto, Canada.

"Most of the time I don't want all of my friends knowing exactly where I am at every moment and exactly what I'm doing,” Chris Hughes told a business meeting in Montreal. That admission may come as a surprise to privacy advocates who have attacked the social networking site for how it handles the personal information of its users. 

Recently critics have accused Facebook of continuing to track users' browsing habits after they have logged out of the site. Mr. Hughes did not address the criticism directly in his speech.

But he did argue that social media shouldn't replace old-fashioned human contact.

I want to continue to live in a world where people can get through a meal without looking at a phone,” he said.
