Zuckerberg said that one of the biggest challenges Facebook faces as a business is that it has grown from a simple service to one people use in many different ways. It’s no longer just a social network for sharing photos.
Facebook tries to update the policy once a year based on new technology and “product challenges,” Zuckerberg said. But, he added in summary, the massive growth of the service has required many changes to the policies.
“We can’t just start building a product without a policy that discloses clearly what we’re doing with [users’] information,” he said.
As a result, he said that it’s a big task to read through the Facebook privacy policies, and the company wants to take “one moment a year” to make the formal changes. “Sometimes we do a good job” with the messaging, and “sometimes we don’t, and we get criticized, and rightfully so.”
