«Today’s creepy is tomorrow’s necessity»

Sean Parker, intervistato da John Battelle,  parla con la consueta ruvidezza della politica riguardo alla privacy di Facebook. Secondo lui, comunque, il problema è che la gente che usa veramente i social media sta lasciando FB per Twitter e - udite, udite! - Google Plus.

“The threat to Facebook is that power users have gone to Twitter or Google+,” Parker told the Web 2.0 Summit — because, he says, Facebook isn’t giving them enough ways to manage a glut of information. [...] Battelle continued on the Facebook line, asking Parker what he thinks of the argument that Facebook is perceived as being a “little creepy.” After attempting to dodge the question — and pointing out that he is a major Facebook shareholder — Parker offered this immortal answer. “Look: there’s good creepy and there’s bad creepy,” he said. “Today’s creepy is tomorrow’s necessity.”
