According to Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal, the modification most under fire is the one requiring users to say whom they want their information shared with. If no choice is made, the default setting is everyone. Since the change, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's photos, friend list and calendar are available for public perusal. The sudden sharing of Zuckerberg's account is likely a ploy to dampen public outcry, says Gawker.
