All she said was "Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend's photo publicly. It's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency." - is that especially unreasonable? It's dumb to expect, but it doesn't warrant this attack piece.

I think he explains it pretty well in the article, but the entire point of Facebook is to do exactly what she's complaining about with the information that people provide on it. You post or like things, they use that information to sell things to you or sell your information to someone else to make a profit. Randi was the marketing director for Facebook until last year, when she used the buckets of money she made off of Facebook to start her own enterprises. She's not -just- Mark's sister, she's had her own hand in the service and did pretty well off of it.

So close on the heels of the Instagram thing where they announced that they own your pics you upload and can do with them as they please, for her to complain about human decency while living the big life off of the money made as part of Facebook is, I don't know, sort of idiotic and hypocritical.

I agree that she made a mistake, but I don't think it's a big mistake and I don't think it was a big reaction from her, which in turn makes it look to me like the author of that piece has a beef with Facebook or Mark Zuckerberg and was looking for a reason to reel off a list of complaints which she has nothing to do with.

If it was Mark who was complaining then I'd understand (and be laughing my ass off) but she's not Mark, she's nobody. She hasn't made a fortune from Facebook, as far as I know. I presume she's made $0 and has 0 input to Facebook's privacy policies - if she has significant number of shares then that's different but I've no reason to believe she does.
