Privacy is not dead

Privacy is not dead. Privacy – and control over various options more generally – is only becoming more important.
It seems Web 3.0 will emphasize the facilitation of Choice (which includes the possibility to easily control privacy settings).

It looks like Facebook has gone the opposite way, missing the opportunity to become the Universal Platform for the three big C’s: Control, Choice and Customization.
