Hey Facebook, I know… It’s really hard to say I’m sorry

You probably don’t need to read the headlines of WhatsApp’s CoFounder telling a group of students at Stanford to delete their Facebook accounts, or read about executives abandoning Facebook over privacy issues to understand that the company is undergoing a period of changes.  And it’s easy to jump into the criticism wagon and complain retroactively.… Continue reading Hey Facebook, I know… It’s really hard to say I’m sorry
