Facebook internal e-mails appear to reveal that Mark Zuckerberg understood troublesome privacy practices


Internal Facebook emails shown federal government regulators reveal CEO Mark Zuckerberg questioning some of the business’s privacy practices, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that cited confidential sources.

While the emails in concern do not appear to show Zuckerberg promoting anything that would clearly break the company’s securities of user privacy, the conversations see the CEO debating the propriety of particular actions in such a way that could feed negative understandings about the company’s attitude toward personal privacy, according to the report.

The e-mails become part of Facebook’s efforts to provide info to the Federal Trade Commission as the firm investigates whether Facebook has adhered to a 2012 approval decree over the social network’s personal privacy practices.
