The backlash against Facebook has been so swift and unexpected, it’s almost impossible to come to grips with and equally as impossible to ignore.
Over the past month, Mark Zuckerberg, the hottest new card player in town, has overplayed his hand. Facebook is officially … uncool, amongst partners, parents and pundits. … Zuckerberg and his company are–simply put–not trustworthy. [He is] an amoral, Asperger’s-like entrepreneur … clearly the worst thing that’s happened to our industry since, well, spam.The entire industry went from rooting for Zuckerberg to hating him … in under 18 months. Peter Rojas and Matt Cutts have turned off their Facebook pages, and more intelligent people everywhere are talking about doing so. [Jason Calcanis]
This isn’t going away for Facebook until they do something about it and it’s only going to get worse as more and more people reject the company for their privacy-raping tactics.
