Zuckerberg in the hot seat at D8

Speaking at the D: All Things Digital conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended his company's approach to privacy, saying it makes sense for users to have a mix of information: some that's shared narrowly and some that should be made broadly available. "There have been misperceptions that we are trying to make all the information public," Zuckerberg said, here. That said, for social networks to link people to one another, some information must necessarily be public, he said. "There's some serendipity that can only happen if you are sharing," Zuckerberg said.
