Like Zuckerberg, Facebook Gives Employees Better Privacy Capabilities Than Average User
[link to dailycaller.com]



Just as it does with leader Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook reportedly affords its employees more privacy protections than the average user.

For instance, when a Facebook employee views a user’s personal profile, the observed doesn’t know the observer is doing so. Facebook employees, on the other hand, are notified through a “Sauron alert” when a colleague is parsing through their page and information, according to The Wall Street Journal. Sauron is a colloquial reference to the antagonist of “The Lord of the Rings” series, who is an evil necromancer who can see all, showing that employees know how such capabilities may be perceived.

If roughly 2 billion users do not have the same privacy powers as the employees, then it wouldn’t be very surprising that the company also deleted records of conversations Zuckerberg had with certain people. Multiple people reportedly told TechCrunch earlier in April that digital conversations they had directly with Zuckerberg before 2016 no longer existed, and not due to their own doing.

Facebook claims it was for cybersecurity reasons.

“After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications,” the tech giant said in a statement sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages.”

The affected users who communicated with Zuckerberg said they never received any notifications of the removal. A Facebook spokeswoman said people can remove messages in their own inbox, but that the threads would still be accessible on the other or others’ accounts.

I mean, that's hardly surprising, employees have more access than clients.

When I started at AOL in '94, it was pretty damn crazy how much access everyone had. It didn't last long, maybe 3 months after I started they clamped down.

During that window, I was able to see users' full accounts from my aol account while signed on. All the permissions were tied to my screen name.

If you remember chat rooms back then, you'd always get trolled asking for your password.

During that short time, I was able to respond with the troller's OWN password.

Very, very satisfying, those few months!!

Where's the class action suit?

Since Zuck and company had better privacy, it's clear it was always possible. He promised, publicly, and lied. What more do you need?

Never used facebook, some tech-savvy family members warned me off it at the get-go.

Delete that shit. FB is nothing but moms posting pics of their kids and viral videos anyway. Men barely exist on FB. What's the point for most of you?
