Facebook: All About Privacy?

Most people don’t think of the site this way but Facebook has announced sweeping changes that will put a huge focus on user privacy and control of their information.

Reading over the proposed changes, I can’t help but see a huge influence of Google+.  So even if Google’s new social network isn’t thriving as much as it did during initial launch (I read somewhere that only 10% of G+’s 25 million users are active on the site), it may end up having a long lasting, positive impact anyhow if it finally makes Facebook get serious about user privacy.

Of course, I also don’t count Google out yet.  Hell, they’re still technically in invite-only Beta mode and they still obtained the fastest growth of any web site in history!
