The old products, new product rolled, rather than one year released a big a pile of product release. Facebook website often appears some experimental function, and then suddenly disappeared. This is the success of Facebook is one of many reasons why: it always keeps pace with The Times.

Unlike like textbooks as carefully polished product, the iterative development product will show a public sight in many mistakes and insufficient. On Facebook, the history of the legislature threat, users objections or negative opinions have contributed to the company's many production decision. Facebook recently for its products and service provision and making some adjustments and incur user strong opposition, now we can wait and see, Facebook will how to deal with the user's opposition.

On the other hand, under the loyal users and legislature discontent in front, Facebook showed great flexibility.

Com website, this application lets students can vote for their own heart the most attractive two classmates. Early in the marketing industry heard "virus" this word is real, before realized Facemash virus, although not everyone likes this propagation mode.
Facebook: then how screwed up, but still no Facebook the behavior of nico rosberg zac - into campus network without permission directory, his classmates personal identification on part-public creature with website - the Facebook today is similar.

Facebook how to remedy: Harvard University several female team protest after a few officials closed Facemash. Com website, and prosecute zack sulzberger against the network security, the infringement of copyright and personal privacy. Although the school eventually gave up the prosecution, but this dying Facemash midway through. But, now, obviously zack sulzberger then laid the foundations for Facebook.

And ConnectU disputes

Early Facebook users may remember Wirehog this additional project, Facebook users can use with friends Wirehog music file sharing pictures and. People feel surprised be, was almost few customers have privacy problem, perhaps because Facebook only to the United States is at some universities open. And can use Wirehog user is less.

How Facebook: early in a mess of Wirehog quietly, before the advent of file sharing has left many anti-piracy fighter veins, so it is not difficult to imagine BenZhang sheba, Facebook when investors first think how much a service, this leads to some obstacles. But, according to people familiar with the Wirehog project said halfway through were cut, because Facebook poineering group Wirehog development that not quickly enough to Facebook, and its influence.

Facebook Wirehog remedial: how was closed. More importantly, Facebook began to Wirehog played very indifference. According to sources, this is not true.

Privacy fighters war-not in activism groups, including the MoveOn. Most clangorous org, the group has claimed this practice greatly violated the user's privacy rights and interests.

Facebook: how screwed up the user without permission in third party sites offer the behavior get Facebook friends share? Yes, this is a mistake.

Facebook how to remedy: Facebook gradually abandoned lighthouse program. First, Facebook announced the project improvement and let users can choose not to share their own data. But after a few of the lawsuits in this project, Facebook eventually published two years later decided to give it up. Has "is a universal genius spine Connect service by Facebook users on Facebook website in third-party web sites to share the whereabouts of seems to have is a regular topic.

However, Facebook later don't think it is reasonable.

Facebook how screwed up: Facebook's hindsight is correct, Facebook at first allows users to himself a regional network, look danzhou-tunchang's smart business. But for an international company, it is this does not reasonable. You can join to be in city, state or national network? If you try to their hometown and currently with local people keep in touch?

Facebook how to remedy: users can still in individual archives location and fill in the current hometown place, according to Facebook advertising. Released these properties precisely But Facebook is no longer provide users with regional network.

Facebook how screwed up: let users are disgruntled by default, Facebook user profile to the entire Internet open, it makes some users worry, think maybe shouldn't trust Facebook will insist on reasonable privacy protection standards.

Facebook how to remedy: not all 4 million users will look to Facebook official blog, therefore Facebook to media, this time the public policy director Eliot's Elliot Schrage, Sarah odd (accepted the "New York times interview and answer a lot of questions. But if this could appease users and privacy protection groups? Maybe not. Facebook this lots of work to do.
