Yeah I think that's probably true. I mean, like I said yesterday in the liveblog (can I quote me?) WWDC is an event for nerds. It's not like new iPhones. If you care about new Macbooks and iOS updates enough to keep up with the liveblogs, you're not exactly an average consumer.

This is true. A family member of mine thought she had her Facebook settings locked down, yet was unknowingly making all of her mobile posts public. Meanwhile, an app that she thought was only meant for her to view other people's photos, was re-sharing her uploads to the open web on its own site. the privacy settings Read more

To be clear we're asking you to not take photos of him in his home, be it via telephoto from a tree, a drone or whatever else. On the street? In a bar? Butchering animals? All fair game. He's a public figure changing the notion of privacy.

I would argue by the very act of making things public by default, and yet remaining largely private. Zuckerberg has said that he does not believe in privacy. (See: [www.wired.com]) If that's the case, why would he have a problem with having his photo taken?

But Zuckerberg has chosen to make posting there public by default, and whether or not you think people should inherently understand that, the fact is that many of them do not. That doesn't make them morons.

Oh, so I guess I've been doing it wrong since 2004, huh? My pro account isn't worth shit, you say? Those tens of thousands of photos I've uploaded don't count, eh? My 300 contacts are also doing it wrong, as are the 400+ people who call me a contact? My photos published in TIme, Mother Jones and all manner of other Read more

I think you're missing a point about what it could have been. It could still offer everything it does today, and so much more, had Yahoo not strangled it for resources. There's no reason it could not be both a great place for your DSLR photos, and a leading social network on the web and mobile. Facebook is powered by Read more

Yeah, sure, and I think that it is a very great niche site.... But it was once the go-to photo sharing place, and it could certainly still be that if the right decisions had been made. And as to "people snapping with their phones" the iPhone is far and away the most popular camera on Flickr.
