Facebook privacy... when it was private.

There’s a visualization graphic out showing the way the default privacy settings for Facebook used to be compared to how they are now five years later. Of course people can control their privacy settings at any time, but the subtle difference in five years is that Facebook initially seemed to protect your privacy as the default. Not no more. We covered this on a Saturday Beancast with Harry Webber, David Armano and AdVerve co-crime fighter Angela Natividad. (Available Monday but it’s up on iTunes now.) We also hit how Facebook’s *changes* might be eroding their brand little by little, yet like a drug, people are just addicted to it. And like any dealer, Facebook knows they’ll keep coming back. For now.
