What is User Privacy, and Does It Actually Exist?

But in the wake of repeated data hacks, ethical mis-steps, and a growing call for privacy standards, many firms, like Facebook, claim to be on the bandwagon. But is this real? Or is it a way to fend off regulation? And btw, just what IS privacy, and is it the same as trust? OUR “In Case You Missed It” FAST FIVE 1.

OUR CRYSTAL BALL PREDICTION: Will Facebook be successful in transitioning to a “privacy” business model that keeps regulators at bay?
