Our Vote: Stay on Facebook
No one is happy about Facebook’s failure to protect our data. That includes its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, who issued a mea culpa in newspaper ads recently. “This was a breach of trust and I’m sorry we didn’t do more at the time,” Zuckerberg said. “We have a responsibility to protect your information. If we can’t, we don’t deserve it.”
Some people aren’t waiting for Facebook to get this right. Frustration over this latest breach of trust has given rise to the #DeleteFacebook movement.
Facebook is a social media platform, but for patient communities, it is more than that: It’s the stage on which we connect, share, and learn from each other. The majority of people in these communities – those interested in everything from diet and nutrition to rare disease – would not have found each other if not for Facebook.
Which is why deleting Facebook isn’t just impractical, it’s undesirable. So what steps can you take to protect your data and communities? Hear what fellow Patient Leaders are doing...
