Final Results of the Recent Facebook Poll

In the recent poll in which I asked readers if they felt Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was sincere in his efforts to improve the privacy issues facing his social media site, most of you weren't buying it.

Here are the final results:

No- 75%
Yes- 25%

Thanks to all of you who participated and shared your thoughts in the comments section. Regarding the latter, my apologies for not responding to you individually in the comments box.

Due to a project that I recently began, my blogging activity will greatly decrease. However, when something pops up in the world of pop culture that interests me and time permits, I'll be back with more posts, polls, etc.

Please Take A Moment To Vote In the Current Facebook Poll... Thank You.

Faced with privacy control problems as well as a damning IM exchange he had as a 19 yr old undergrad at Harvard, 25 yr old Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg got out the proverbial pail and started bailing with an open letter published in the Washington Post. You can read more on the story by visiting the following link:

Contrite Facebook CEO promises new privacy controls

However, talk is just like a $5 hooker (cheap) so it remains to be seen if Zuckerberg will be a man of his word. What do you think?

Zuckerberg may want to keep that pail on standby: a movie about the founding of Facebook, The Social Network, is scheduled to open on October 15, 2010.
