Did anyone know about this? The news article is from May 2010. Mark Zuckerburg was 19 when he said it. In IM transcripts that were put out has him calling the first few thousand that signed up ' dumb *ucks'.

For the whole article, including the chat he had with an unnamed person go here.

I have to agree with him, anyone daft enough to display their entire life to the world, and anyone daft enough to hand over all their personal details to random internet companies, IMO, is a dumb***k.

Nice to see him admit it though.

QFT

People should be careful what they sign up for and what information they give away. Too much is given away in these social networking sites. IMO

I am finding less and less use for facebook.

I think it's useful to market yourself (music, business, products, ideas), and to keep up with family. But it's awful when someone you went on one date with, back in high school looks you up and tries to "catch up". It's silly.

People are too connected these days.

So if we are getting called names, maybe we deserve it.

I see no problem with him saying that at all. It used to be that no one ever put personal information out on the web. Now it's ok? Don't think so! The FB page I have doesn't have my real name or any info- I just use the names I use in my mmos.

Well I do see a big problem with him saying it. It shows that at that time he was an immature, unprofessional, foul mouthed punk kid.

Who wasn't/isn't at 19? Er, okay, maybe don't answer that. But really? Look at what he created(stole) and how big it got. You'd start getting cocky too. 19 and on top of the world. Whatever. Not like it affects anyone adversely.
