As if you needed another reason to despise douchebag Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, apparently he holds his customers in complete and utter contempt.
The Cambridge Analytica scandal has thrown a harsh light on how Facebook uses the data its billions of users share with it. And an early conversation from Mark Zuckerberg shows that the CEO himself was at one point confused by why people would share so much information with him.
Dating from the early years of this century, when Facebook had just 4,000 users, the conversation was highlighted this week in a Medium post by Maria Bustillos entitled ‘The Smallness of Mark Zuckerberg.’ It’s from messaging records dating from when Mark Zuckerberg was 19, and was first leaked to the media in 2010.
Zuckerberg: Yea so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard, just ask. ‘i have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, sms
Friend: what!? how’d you manage that one?
Zuckerberg: people just submitted it. i don’t know why. they “trust me”. dumb f***s.
I’ve been telling Mrs. Earp I was looking to leave Facebook for a while now. It’s a horrible platform, I don’t really use it, and this info sharing nonsense has me apprehensive about staying there. In fairness, I’m about to leave Twitter, too. That place is a cesspool, and all it does is anger me.
