Mark Zuckerberg founder of facebook give commitment to the facebook community. Mark zuckerberg said that he has founded facebook on the idea that people want to share and connect with people in their lives, but for doing this everyone needs complete control over who they share with at all times.
Complete control on everyone's account has been the core of Facebook since the day facebook started. When Mark Zuckerberg started the Facebook network few people use to have a public page on the internet and most of the people didn't wanted to have one. But with privacy, people feel safe on facebook sharing with their friends family and others. Control is the key which facebook has given to its user from the starting, and people had the tools they needed to control their profile. Because of this facebook has became the world's biggest community online.
Mark Zuckerberg also mention the new tools like sharing photos, creating groups, commenting on and liking your friends posts and recently even listening to music or watching videos together and all of these each of them have complete control over who sees everything that people share. Now for the control of privacy people share many more things then the past.
Mark Zuckerberg said "Overall, I think we have a good history of providing transparency and control over who can see your information.
That said, I'm the first to admit that we've made a bunch of mistakes. In particular, I think that a small number of high profile mistakes, like Beacon four years ago and poor execution as we transitioned our privacy model two years ago, have often overshadowed much of the good work we've done.
I also understand that many people are just naturally skeptical of what it means for hundreds of millions of people to share so much personal information online, especially using any one service. Even if our record on privacy were perfect, I think many people would still rightfully question how their information was protected. It's important for people to think about this, and not one day goes by when I don't think about what it means for us to be the stewards of this community and their trust.
Facebook has always been committed to being transparent about the information you have stored with us – and we have led the internet in building tools to give people the ability to see and control what they share.
But we can also always do better. I'm committed to making Facebook the leader in transparency and control around privacy.
As we have grown, we have tried our best to listen closely to the people who use Facebook. We also work with regulators, advocates and experts to inform our privacy practices and policies. Recently, the US Federal Trade Commission established agreements with Google and Twitter that are helping to shape new privacy standards for our industry. Today, the FTC announced a similar agreement with Facebook. These agreements create a framework for how companies should approach privacy in the United States and around the world.
For Facebook, this means we're making a clear and formal long-term commitment to do the things we've always tried to do and planned to keep doing -- giving you tools to control who can see your information and then making sure only those people you intend can see it.
In the last 18 months alone, we've announced more than 20 new tools and resources designed to give you more control over your Facebook experience. Some of the things these include are:
• An easier way to select your audience when making a new post
• Inline privacy controls on all your existing posts
• The ability to review tags made by others before they appear on your profile
• Friend lists that are easier to create and that maintain themselves automatically
• A new groups product for sharing with smaller sets of people
• A tool to view your profile as someone else would see it
• Tools to ensure your information stays secure like double login approval
• Mobile versions of your privacy controls
• An easy way to download all your Facebook data
• A new apps dashboard to control what your apps can access
• A new app permission dialog that gives you clear control over what an app can do anytime you add one
• Many more privacy education resources
As a matter of fact, privacy is so deeply embedded in all of the development we do that every day tens of thousands of servers worth of computational resources are consumed checking to make sure that on any webpage we serve, that you have access to see each of the sometimes hundreds or even thousands of individual pieces of information that come together to form a Facebook page. This includes everything from every post on a page to every tag in those posts to every mutual friend shown when you hover over a person's name. We do privacy access checks literally tens of billions of times each day to ensure we're enforcing that only the people you want see your content. These privacy principles are written very deeply into our code.
Even before the agreement announced by the FTC today, Facebook had already proactively addressed many of the concerns the FTC raised. For example, their complaint to us mentioned our Verified Apps Program, which we canceled almost two years ago in December 2009. The same complaint also mentions cases where advertisers inadvertently received the ID numbers of some users in referrer URLs. We fixed that problem over a year ago in May 2010.
In addition to these product changes, the FTC also recommended improvements to our internal processes. We've embraced these ideas, too, by agreeing to improve and formalize the way we do privacy review as part of our ongoing product development process. As part of this, we will establish a biannual independent audit of our privacy practices to ensure we're living up to the commitments we make.
Even further, effective today I am creating two new corporate officer roles to make sure our commitments will be reflected in what we do internally -- in the development of our products and the security of our systems -- and externally -- in the way we work collaboratively with regulators, government agencies and privacy groups from around the world:
- Erin Egan will become Chief Privacy Officer, Policy. Erin recently joined Facebook after serving as a partner and co-chair of the global privacy and data security practice of Covington & Burling, the respected international law firm. Throughout her career, Erin has been deeply involved in legislative and regulatory efforts to address privacy, data security, spam, spyware and other consumer protection issues. Erin will lead our engagement in the global public discourse and debate about online privacy and ensure that feedback from regulators, legislators, experts and academics from around the world is incorporated into Facebook's practices and policies.
- Michael Richter will become Chief Privacy Officer, Products. Michael is currently Facebook's Chief Privacy Counsel on our legal team. In his new role, Michael will join our product organization to expand, improve and formalize our existing program of internal privacy review. He and his team will work to ensure that our principles of user control, privacy by design and transparency are integrated consistently into both Facebook's product development process and our products themselves.
These two positions will further strengthen the processes that ensure that privacy control is built into our products and policies. I'm proud to have two such strong individuals with so much privacy expertise serving in these roles.
Today's announcement formalizes our commitment to providing you with control over your privacy and sharing -- and it also provides protection to ensure that your information is only shared in the way you intend. As the founder and CEO of Facebook, I look forward to working with the Commission as we implement this agreement. It is my hope that this agreement makes it clear that Facebook is the leader when it comes to offering people control over the information they share online.
Finally, I also want to reaffirm the commitment I made when I first launched Facebook. We will serve you as best we can and work every day to provide you with the best tools for you to share with each other and the world. We will continue to improve the service, build new ways for you to share and offer new ways to protect you and your information better than any other company in the world."

Comparing, costing, hardware, features, software, applications between iPod, iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire.
Are you thinking of buying a new tablet or you wish that you could do everything easily though the ipod but still you are confused about which one should you get ? are you confused comparing each of them ? So, you might like ipad look but too cost ? Amazon kindle fire cheap but confused because of the hardware ? ipod will you able to work on it properly as you like to it to do.There’s a lot to consider — the quality and dimensions of the hardware, the features and flexibility of the operating system, the availability and diversity of the content, the difference in cost and value, and we’ll take you through all of it, point by point, to help you decide.
If you are outside of U.S ?
First and the most easier is simple geography.If you are living outside of U.S then Amazon has limited support that might as well be non-existant.Apple by contrast has good support for apps and increasing support for music, movies, and more around the world.
So, the points are location:
- Kindle Support Only In U.S
- iPod iPad has better international support.
If you think about the price then iPad is doubled then the Kindle fire.If you have only $199 only then you should take Kindle or you should go for the smaller version iPod Touch.
So are price ranges are:
- iPad starts at $499
- Kindle Fire is $199
- iPod touch starts at $199
If you think about the iPad then yes it has bigger display then the other two. iPad has a 9.7-inch screen and on the other hand kindle fire has 7-inch screen.But if you think about the ipod it has a little screen 3.5-inch.iPad is better for running more expansive apps and immersive content, the iPod touch for more on-the-go, interstitial use. The Amazon Fire is a great compromise between the two size.
So whats the difference are ?
- iPad bigger, portable not a mobile, heavy, large, requires a travel bag
- Kindle fire medium size, fit in large pocket, small hand bag can carry it easily.
- iPod touch is small and ultra-mobile, easy to carry anywhere, fit in pocket easily just like any cellphone.
So, if you are thinking about a portable device you must be thinking of using internet in it even when you are out from your home, work, school or other Wi-Fi hotspot. As we all know internet is one of the important source for us now a days. So, if you thinking about the connectivity then iPad has 3G option.If you do not have easy access to a Wi-Fi or tethering, Kindle Fire and iPod touch go offline.
- iPod has both option 3G and Wi-Fi.
- Kindle Fire and iPod touch only Wi-Fi.
iPad design is very good amazing fit and finish and is absolutely best in class in most areas, with the notable exception of the rather pathetic front and rear cameras. The iPod touch is similar, though has a lower screen technology (no inter-plane switching) to keep costs down as well. The Amazon Kindle Fire uses the BlackBerry Playbook chassis which is great but not Apple great.
- iPad is high quiality glass and aluminum with excellent display and clear picture graphics are very high fast in process.
- Kindle fire is good quality, re-purposed plastic with good display but will be slower in process then the iPad.
- iPod touch is high quiality glass and aluminum with okay display music quality is very good and fast process.
iPad and iPod touch is running on iOS operating system which has great advantages, including also the great features which others don't have like FaceTime for free video calls, tons of great built-in apps, and Safari the best mobile brwoser in the business right now. Amazon has built in special version of Google's Android Gingerbread OS specifically tied to the Amazon store and to best show off Amazon Store content. But it doesn't have the Google's apps like Gmail, Navigation or market.
- iPad and iPod touch run full version of iOS and multi function ability and more built in apps.
- Kindle fire runs Android Gingerbread OS Android optimized and consuming Amazon content.
Apple has great support till now. Apple has retail stores throughout the U.S and in many cities around the world. Also a great online and phone support, ability to walk into an Apple Store and take a free class on how to setup and use your device or get a Genius Bar appointment to fix it, can be invaluable. Amazon is the world's largest online retailer with a stellar reputation for online support.
- iPad and iPod touch has only only online and phone support but also retail and Genius in person support.
- Amazon Kindle Fire has only online support.
Apple still has the most apps in mobile, including over 100,000 specifically built to take advantage of the larger iPad screen and over a half-a-million for iPod touch. If games are a consideration, the App Store typically gets them first and with the best, most fluid graphics. Amazon has built their own version of the Android market with less content but arguably better curation than Google’s.
You can also get a Kindle and other Amazon apps — and Google apps — for iPad and iPod touch, but you can’t get Apple apps — or Google apps — for the Kindle Fire.
- iPad has access to purpose-built large-screen iPad apps as well as iPhone/iPod touch App Store apps
- Kindle Fire has access to Amazon appstore approved Android apps
- iPod touch has access to most iPhone App Store apps
Both the iPad and iPod touch have been on the market for years and have tons of great cases and other accessories available. Also, Apple allows accessories to connect via dock port, Bluetooth or AirPlay, meaning you can connect your iPad or iPod touch to a wide arrange of gear and gadgets, everything from cars to cameras to Apple TV, to special-purpose scientific instruments. Amazon Kindle Fire is just hitting the market so it will take a while for a lot of accessories to come out.
- iPad and iPod touch have huge variety of accessories available
- Amazon Kindle will take a while to ramp up accessories
There will likely be an iPad 3 sometime next spring, potentially with a double-density display and other hardware improvements. There was no new iPod touch this year but there might be one next fall. Both, however, are mature, well supported products and if you want either now, you’ll get a great device now. The Amazon Kindle Fire is a brand new device and inarguably an immature one at this point. Amazon will no doubt introduce a new, hopefully much better, hopefully much more internationally supported, Kindle Fire sometime next year. If you’re not dying for one now, you might be better off waiting.
- New iPad 3 likely in spring, but iPad 2 is solid now
- New Kindle Fire sometime next year, current Kindle Fire immature
- New iPod touch likely next fall, but current iPod touch is good now
So the bottom line is ?
While this is an iPad and iPod touch blog, and we’re no doubt biased, the Amazon Kindle Fire is so new, so U.S.-centric, and so obviously intended to be little more than a front end to the Amazon Store that it’s tough to recommend. Future versions could be outstanding, but right now you have to really not want an iPad or iPod touch, and really want an Amazon tablet to get the Kindle Fire.
- The iPad is best if the big size is a plus and not a minus for you, if you want the most apps optimized for the most screen real-estate, if you want 3G connectivity, and something that can better replace a laptop or netbook for light computing work.
- The Kindle Fire is best if you live in the U.S. and are a heavy user of the Amazon Store, if you want something smaller, lighter, and cheaper than an iPad but bigger than the iPod touch, and if media focus and pocket-ability is more important than flexibility for your needs.
- The iPod touch is best if you want the smallest, lightest, cheapest, most mobile solution possible, if you want the most app and accessory choice available, if you want something that’s as close to a phone-style experience that possible without being a phone.

According to news an 18 years old male student who is studing in Berlin Eisenhower High School in New Berlin which is in Waukesha Country about 15 miles west of Milwaukee opened a fake account on Facebook as a girl, this guys has tricked more then 31 male classmates so that they send him naked photos of themselves and then blackmailing some for sex acts.
Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel said Wednesday "The kind of manipulation that occurred here is really sinister in my estimation".
Anthony Stancl, of New Berlin, was charged Wednesday with five counts of child enticement, two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child, two counts of third-degree sexual assault, possession of child pornography, repeated sexual assault of the same child and making a bomb threat.
Stancl's attorney, Craig Kuhary, said Stancl plans to plead not guilty to the charges and hopes to reach a plea agreement with the district attorney
"It's too early in the case for me to make a statement, other than the fact at some point we are going to go into events that had taken place earlier that might have had some impact on what he did here," he said. He wouldn't go into specifics.
The incidents allegedly happened from spring 2007 through November, when officers questioned Stancl about a bomb threat he allegedly sent to teachers and wrote about on a school's bathroom wall. It resulted in the closing of New Berlin Eisenhower Middle and High School.
According to the criminal complaint, Stancl first contacted the students through the social networking site Facebook, pretending to be a girl named Kayla or Emily.
The boys reported that they were tricked into sending nude photos or videos of themselves, the complaint said.
Thirty-one victims were identified and interviewed and more than half said the girl with whom they thought they were communicating tried to get them to meet with a male friend to let him perform sex acts on them.
They were told that if they didn't, she would send the nude photos or movies to their friends and post them on the Internet, according to the complaint. Stancl allegedly used the excuse to get the victims to perform repeated acts, the complaint said.
Seven boys were identified in the complaint by their initials as either having to allegedly perform sex acts on Stancl or Stancl on them. The complaint said Stancl took photos with his cell phone of the encounters.
Officers found about 300 nude images of juvenile males on his computer, according to the complaint. Prosecutors said the victims were as young as 15.
A preliminary hearing for Stancl has been scheduled for Feb. 26. The maximum penalty if convicted on all charges is nearly 300 years in prison.

Wednesday on SharesPost auction facebook value was closed at $30 per share, which is dropped 6.25 percent as before. This is the fourth consecutive time when facebook value has taken a dive.
But Facebook still got 2.5 billion outstanding shares o market, and the company's value is to be $75 billion, as down from $80 million at the end of October, and in Septermber it was $82.25 billion and $82.5 billion in AUguest.
The auctions had plateaued earlier this year at $35 per share, before beginning a slow decline in late summer.
The SharesPost results seem to contradict other data: reports of doubling revenues for the social networking site, a successful F8 developer conference, growth in its lobbying and public affairs operation, a very successful partnership with Spotify, and enhanced privacy features.
All of these factors outside of the SharesPost pricing trends would point toward a possible initial public offering of stock sometime in 2012. But the last four auctions of Facebook stock seem to indicate that an IPO needs to wait.
Then again, Facebook shares are still highly coveted. The demand is so strong that one Florida fund manager decided he couldn’t wait for a Facebook public offering and launched one of his own making.
John Mattera of Fort Lauderdale, was accused of promoting phony access to shares of Facebook and Groupon, according to a report in Reuters.
The U.S. government said that $4 million of the $11 million that was invested with Mattera went to such luxury items buying cars and jewelry, paying personal taxes and settling a private civil fraud lawsuit.
The criminal complaint filed in Manhattan district court yesterday charges Mattera with securities fraud and money laundering. He faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted.
The news of this charge came a day after the latest SharesPost auction and therefore didn’t influence the closing price in any way. Private market sales of Facebook stock occurs on a monthly basis, so it’s possible that investors might remember Mattera when bidding on the next round of shares.
Meanwhile, here’s what SharesPost sent out to members about the Facebook stock auction that closed on November 16:
SharesPost’s affiliated broker-dealer completed its auction of 75,000 shares of the Class B Common Stock of Facebook, Inc. on November 16th. A clearing price of $30.00 was established at the auction. Members submitting Qualifying Bids at or above the clearing price will be contacted shortly with instructions on next steps for completing this transaction.
SharesPost members who wish to be informed of and be eligible to participate in future auctions of private company securities must first be qualified by our affiliated broker-dealer as an accredited investor under the securities laws. To get qualified, please click on the green button below. We look forward to serving you at SharesPost in the future.

Few months ago Facebook added a new feature by which you will able to select and make a list of particular friends and their updates. You can add a single or multiple friends in your close friends list. For example, you want to get all updates only of your close friends, you want to get all updates only from your family or relatives, you want to get all updates from the people live near your city, you want to get all updates from only your network like school collage and university friends. So you can easily make that list and get all updates of them. Facebook introduces its new news feed which tells you from the most important news to less important news. Which means the most likes and most comments posts will be on the top of your Facebook updates since your last visit. So, making a list is very important so you won't miss any updates from your close friends. So you can make that list easily with few steps shown below:
Step 1: Go to your Facebook home page and select the list you want to add friends in.For example: if you would like to add friends on your close friends list then click Close Friends from list of left side bar of Facebook home.

As we all know few months ago Facebook introduce us with the new news feed, now whenever you visit Facebook home, you can see the most interesting updates from your friends, like status updates from family and closest friends, as last Week Facebook announced improvements to Friend List and a new Subcribe button with more options and features.
But not only your friends making Facebook interesting for you, it is also on you that how much you visit Facebook. For example if you join Facebook after a week, you may want to see summary of top stories first, if you have already visited several times on a particular day or on that day, you probably care more about the recent news and updates.
From now Facebook made it easier to keep up with the people in your life no matter how frequently or infrequently you are on Facebook.
Top Of Page of News Feed Facebook Home
It is basic and we all know if we start reading a newspaper which is 1 or 2 weeks old we will must choose the front page which will quickly clues us into the most interesting stories. In the past Facebook news feed hasn't worked like that. Updates slide down in cronological order so it is tough to zero in on what matters most.
But now Facebook has announced news feed Facebook home will be your own personal newspaper. Now you do not have to worry or even you don't miss any of the important stuff of your family and friends. All theu updates and news will be in a single stream with the most interesting stories featured at the top. If you didn't visited Facebook for a particular time, the first things you will see are the top photos, status, updates posted while you are been away.They will be marked with an easy to spot blue corner. As you can see in the below picture:
If you check Facebook regularly and more frequently, you will see all the most recent updates and stories by first, photos will be also bigger and easier to enjoy and see while you are scrolling through the updates.
The Old News Feed But Now Its Ticker
News Feed often has a time lag. Usually when you're on Facebook, a lot of your friends are too. Until now, there hasn't been an easy way to see and chat with your friends about photos, articles, and other things they're posting in real-time. The new ticker helps you do just that.
Ticker shows you the same stuff you were already seeing on Facebook, but it brings your conversations to life by displaying updates instantaneously. Now when a friend comments, asks a question or shares something like a check in, you'll be able to join the conversation right away. Click on anything in ticker to see the full story and chime in – without losing your place.
If you have a wider screen, slide the grey bar between ticker and chat up or down to adjust how many updates you see at a time. To control who can see your updates anywhere on Facebook, including in ticker and News Feed, adjust your apps settings.
So, how do you identify Facebook fake accounts ?
1. Normally we can identify fake facebook account from its friendlist. If you see a user has mass number of friends such as 2000 or 3000 more friends that means that account might be fake. But most of the times fake accounts disable viewing its friendlist.
2. Profile photos albums photos. Watch the photos careful , a fake account always do not have more then 5 or 6 profile pictures. Also not more then 1 or 2 albums. As we all know we all have camera even in cellphones so it is easy to upload photos regularly. So always see photo activity and updates. Watch the photos does it update regularly or frequently and photo types.Also see the tag photos as fake accounts will have more tagged photos.
3. Walls and comments are most important part. As fake accounts will not be able to reply all wall posts and comments. Which means less activity. So if you see the account holder is less active in her or his comment and wall posts that means that account might be fake.
4. Lot of mutual friends. This is very common in all fake account that you will see in a fake account there is lot of mutual friends.
5. Always watch networks. A fake account will be in lot of networks joining in lot of networks that is not possible that a normal person can be everywhere. So network is also a common factor in all fake accounts that they will have lot of networks in their list.

According to forbes records Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the 9th most powerful person in world. Yes you can say there is only 8 people alive in the world who can stop him or his quest to control precisely everything.So there might be a question in your might that who are those persons who can stop him or more popular then Mark Zuckerberg, according to Forbes reports US President Barack Obama is still in number 1 position.But he seems pleasantly disposed to Mark Zuckerberg.They have even had a dinner together.
This merely leaves Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Hu Jintao, Germany's Angela Merkel, Bill Gates, the King of Saudi Arabia, the Pope and federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
Some might have imagined that Bill Gates would still be competitive enough to halt the lone fellow techie in the top 10. Then they might remember that Microsoft has money in Facebook.
So unless Prime Minister (and future repeat President) Putin and President Hu can get together to create a brand new worldwide social network, it will surely be over.
Privacy will be defined by whatever our World SocialNet Party Leader feels is appropriate for our future. Elections will be exclusively held on Facebook. Having 20,000 friends will be compulsory, as will penning 15 posts a day, including at least five videos.
Those who transgress will be sent to hard labor on the Collective FarmVille.
Forbes explained that it looked first at how many people the folks on their list had power over. Yes, when it comes to Zuckerberg, they included you and me among his subjects.
Then they looked at the financial resources controlled by the candidates and whether they were influential in more than one sphere.
Lastly, Forbes looked at something very important: how "actively" these powerful people wielded their power.
