Zuckerbergs Confront Online Privacy Issues

We continue to think online privacy issues will be important -- and confusing -- to navigate.  The recent situation involving the leak of home photos posted by Randi Zuckerberg onto Facebook in a way she thought made them private (check out the USA Today article here: ) raises etiquette questions and highlights privacy issues.

First, if Randi Zuckerberg, Mark's sister and former FB insider, has trouble navigating FB's privacy controls, what hope is there for the rest of us.

Second, some suggest that Randi was able to get the photos taken down because no one wants to mess with a Zuckerberg -- and that the rest of us would not have been able to convince someone else to pull down similar, mundane photos. (Disclosure: I have had prior contact with Randi on behalf of a client, and have found her to be smart and professional.)

What do you think are important issues with regard to online privacy in 2013?
