14 years of Mark Zuckerberg saying sorry, not sorry

14 years of Mark Zuckerberg saying sorry, not sorry

From the moment the Facebook founder entered the public eye in 2003 for creating a Harvard student hot-or-not rating site, he’s been apologizing. So we collected this abbreviated history of his public mea culpas.

It reads like a record on repeat. Zuckerberg, who made “move fast and break things” his slogan, says sorry for being naive, and then promises solutions such as privacy “controls,” “transparency” and better policy “enforcement.” And then he promises it again the next time. You can track his sorries in orange and promises in blue in the timeline below.

The article is dated April 2018 so misses the most recent re-apologies as well as his biggest promise back in the beginning that "he would never sell the users data as it belonged to the users". Much of the issue probably stems from all the commercialisation versus other networks which put privacy first even if it means charging their users. You either have privacy or you don't - you can't try and protect privacy while changing the rules and bending the trust as far as you possibly can.
