The Inquirer: On the Charlie Rose television show, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended his company’s privacy record by saying it isn’t as bad as other tech giants. “If you look at companies, whether it’s Google or Yahoo or Microsoft, that have search engines and ad networks, they also have a huge amount of information about you,” he said. “It’s just that they’re collecting that about you behind your back… they’re collecting this huge amount of information about who you are. But you never know that.”

He added, “I think that these companies with those big ad networks are basically getting away with collecting huge amounts of information, likely way more information than people are sharing on Facebook.”
