Privacy issues among generational users of Facebook

A lot of discussion these days on privacy issues surrounding Facebook. This baby boomer user perceives the recent problems completely different from the other generation users. PRIVACY is and will always be an important concern when posting and contributing online. I don’t accept as my own, what Zuckerberg says about sharing:

Six years ago, we built Facebook around a few simple ideas. People want to share and stay connected with their friends and the people around them. If we give people control over what they share, they will want to share more. If people share more, the world will become more open and connected. And a world that’s more open and connected is a better world. These are still our core principles today.

But I respect his opinion, which drives his business. And I do respect the principles by which Facebook operates:

— You have control over how your information is shared.

— We do not share your personal information with people or services you don’t want.

— We do not give advertisers access to your personal information.

— We do not and never will sell any of your information to anyone.

— We will always keep Facebook a free service for everyone.

I see others use Facebook where I use email, phone calls and person-to-person contact to share important and confidential information. So to this user, the privacy issues on Facebook are “a no issue”.
