Mark Zuckerberg gets an Android, and misses his privacy a little
Mark Zuckerberg may be regretting his decision to keep his Facebook profile privacy settings so low.
Last month, Mark Zuckerberg announced in a status message that his new iPhone wasn’t rocking his world. He wrote on his Facebook wall, “This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls.” He added in a comment that his old Blackberry hurt his thumbs, and that he would switch to iPhone 4 or to the Android.
Ryan Tate at Gawker wrote a post about the update: Facebook CEO Disses iPhone (which got over 100K views). Tate is a close follower of Zuck’s page, having also picked up a video the CEO was tagged in, of him “icing” one of his employees.
Zuck has since made good on his promise and purchased an Android, if his Facebook wall is to be believed:
But he may not want that reported. The man who has allegedly said he doesn’t believe in privacy seems a bit irked about his loss of privacy…
Zuckerberg appeared to regret his oversharing, and later got rid of the iPhone-dissing post (by deleting it or making it private), as noted by Geek.com. It appears Zuckerberg didn’t want to knock a fellow tech giant quite so publicly.
Regarding that last comment — happy to fulfill your prophecy.
The CEO may object to the close coverage of his tech toy reviews, but he doesn’t mind continuing to publicize his “Bros icing Bros” activities. He has not asked his friend to privatize/take down the icing video, starring him that garnered Gawker’s attention, and when he got iced by his UK Sales Team later that month, he was happy to tell the world about it.
Slamming Smirnoff Ices doesn’t necessitate privacy. Slamming the iPhone does.
