One of the biggest problems Facebook faces is privacy. Because of privacy issues, to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, violations of the App Store rules, to Facebook's efforts to pay people so that data can be taken over.

Mistakes of this privacy step made the world's largest social network subject to a USD 5 billion fine by the US Federas Trade Commission.

In a new book titled Facebook: The Inside Story by Wired writer Steven Levy, the CEO and founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg discussed about privacy. Especially regarding the early days of Facebook.

However, this book also implies one thing, namely Zuckerberg's view of privacy which is considered dishonest.

Quoting Business Insider Singapore, Wednesday (2/26/2020), in 2003, when Mark Zuckerberg was still studying at Harvard and experimenting with social networking, he once created a prank website called Facemash.

The website shows photos of classmates and asks other students to choose which one is most interesting.

Existing, Zuckerberg even hacked the campus computer system to download photos of his friends without the approval of any of the students there.

Officers immediately cut off Zuckerberg's internet access and threatened to expel him from campus. So that was reported by The Harvard Crimson newspaper at that time.

After that, the Crimson also wrote, Mark Zuckerberg was less concerned with the privacy of students.

"Mark Zuckerberg also noticed the criticism and promised to make privacy a core component of his service," Levy wrote in his book.
However, just one year running, Mark Zuckerberg even hacked emails belonging to students of The Crimson editor. You do this by accessing their Facebook login information.

Shortly after launching The Facebook from his dorm room, Mark Zuckerberg sent an email to his friend.

Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah, so when you need information about anyone at Harvard, just ask. I have 4,000 emails, photos, addresses, and social networks.
A friend: What? How do you get it?
Zuckerberg: People just put it (to The Facebook). I do not know why. They 'believe me'. Stupid.

Chat with Friends

By telephone, Levy, told the incident when Zuck was 19 years old. While in 2020 Zuck should have changed.

Levy said that the hacking e-mails of students from the Crimson group were an illustration of Zuckerberg's approach to privacy.

Mark Zuckerberg himself told Levy that he regretted what he had done in the past and considered it an immature act.

Zuck also got frustrated. "Instant messages and old emails from when I was a teenager continued to appear out of context," Zuck said.
