In Sheera Frenkel and Cecilia Kang's "An Ugly Truth," the authors recount the company's long history of insider threats in which employees (mostly men) used the company's tools to stalk people (mostly women).
The stalking targets included both strangers and intimate partners - for example, an engineer used FB's tools to locate his partner after she fled their shared vacation hotel room in order to "confront her."
I am skeptical that FB will *ever* be a trustworthy guardian of its users' safety and privacy. I don't think the problem is that Mark Zuckerberg is the wrong self-appointed czar of 3B peoples' lives - I think the problem is that no one should have that job.
But if you disagree - if you want to fix, rather than abolish, Facebook - then you need to figure out which policies will tip the balance in favor of the public interest.
