Sgrouples’ Simple Privacy Policy Might Please Randi Zuckerberg

This morning it was reported that Randi Zuckerberg, sister to Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame, grew increasingly upset after a picture that she had (supposedly “privately”) posted to her personal Facebook page was tweeted for the world to see. It turns out, a friend of another Zuckerberg child had seen it and shared, assuming it was public.

...Said Photo.

…Said Photo.

The friend ended up apologizing, but Randi continued to express her dismay, which leads us to the question: If the Zuckerbergs can’t understand Facebook’s privacy policy, then who can?

Sgrouples has a Privacy Bill of Rights written in simple terms for all to understand. You can find the full Bill here, but I’ll give you the basics:

  • We don’t spy, track, or profile you or your information.
  • You own your own content. We don’t.
  • We protect your identity to the extent the law allows.

We’d like to think Randi wouldn’t have had such a difficult time had she been using Sgrouples!
