MacNotables #1016: Christopher Breen Discusses Why He Left Facebook

Macworld Senior Editor Christopher Breen recently completed an article on his concerns about the privacy issues generated by the latest revisions to Facebook, and proclaiming that he has left the service. Chris explains exactly why he left, his decision to deactivate his account vs. deleting it, and why he feels this situation represents a disturbing trend for Facebook. While we’ve become accustomed self-serving corporate actions, Chris feels Facebook’s is different, from their quiet implementation of the changes to their explanatory article in the New York Times, and talks about why. The conversation also includes what he will miss about the service, his advice on how to protect yourself if you feel you must stay, his recommendations to Facebook to correct the situation, and an open invitation to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
