Zuckerberg: we’re listening to you. Isn’t that Mandelson’s favourite line?
The number one thing we’ve heard is that there just needs to be a simpler way to control your information. We’ve always offered a lot of controls, but if you find them too hard to use then you won’t feel like you have control. Unless you feel in control, then you won’t be comfortable sharing and our service will be less useful for you. We agree we need to improve this.
Today we’re starting to roll out some changes that will make all of these controls a lot simpler. We’ve focused on three things: a single control for your content, more powerful controls for your basic information and an easy control to turn off all applications.
Saying you’re listening and doing something about what you hear are two different things. I think I’ll wait a bit longer before I go back to Facebook.
