re: Zuckerberg Photo Flap: 4 Lessons
What a shocking report, nothing on Facebook is safe, wow such an eye opener...NOT! Anything put online should be considered available forever and to whoever. Anyone who does not think so will soon find the error of their ways. I find it disingenuous that Randi Zuckerberg even has the audacity to complain when her brothers views are privacy indicate there is no privacy http://www.pamorama.net/2010/0...

The biggest lesson that anyone needs to know about social media is that, most likely than not, you're creating content and attracting users (friends, clients, etc.) for someone else's Internet advertising platform. Any time an ad gets served on a web page, someone's getting paid for it - and when you create content (i.e. your status updates) and people log in to read them, they see the ads (or at least the call is made to the server to deliver the ad - whether or not it gets rendered in the browser is a different story), someone makes money. Getting attention/spotlight brings revenue... for someone. The Zuckerbergs make money because they run the platform - how are you making money from their platform?

At any rate, the issues that you're seeing here come from those who are creating things for the general public (i.e. lowest common denominator) and putting them out there without appropriate education regarding the ramifications of their actions. Then the general public is finding out, sometimes the hard way, how to navigate around. "Digital Etiquette" is something you'll find dancing in the meadow with unicorns, lepreichans and the Easter Bunny. Some would even say that etiquette in general is dying a slow, painful death - thanks to the digital age.

I find it more than suspicious that former FB marketing director, Randi Zuckerberg, tried to make a huge fuss about this 'private' photo being shared -- at a time when she is apparently desperately trying to gin up PR for the failing reality show, "Start-Ups," that she produces.

I smell a publicity loving rodent...

2014 State of Unified Communications
If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
