Does Facebook really care about our privacy?

It was interesting reading some of the Mark Zuckerberg interview coverage during the All Things D Conference being held in southern California.  As many people know by now, Mark Zuckerberg is the 26-year-old founder of the social networking site Facebook.  During a confrontational line of questioning from some seasoned journalists about Facebook’s privacy issues, Zuckerberg appeared to squirm and sweat profusely removing his trademark hoodie sweater in the process.  Some refered to the episode as a “Nixon Moment” in reference to Richard Nixon the 37th president of the United States who resigned shamefully in 1974 after the Watergate scandal.  Zuckerberg’s answers were evasive and rambling and offered no meaningful reform plans of Facebook’s current privacy strategies.  He concluded that this issue was much ado about nothing and will probably end up as a footnote in history.  Meanwhile, Facebook has exploded to over 500 million users.  Does Mark Zuckerberg really care about individual privacy issues?  If he does, is he willing to provide a solution that will satisfy the masses?  More information on the All Things D Conference can be found here.
