Side note for history: Goldman Sachs invested $450 million (£288 million) in Facebook over the New Year period, taking the valuation of the site to $50 billion (£32 billion). The site has nearly 600 million users (rising at 700,000 people a day), putting the valuation of each user at the amazing amount of $100.
According to the article's author Will Haven, then, "No – the tide is turning, with fears about privacy on the rise."
I spoke to a former classmate of Zuckerberg’s and asked whether Harvard students use the site as much as they used to. “No, definitely not,” he said. “When I signed up, Facebook was a closed and exclusive community. It was exciting to be a part of it. Now that era’s over, Harvard students are much more worried about protecting, not sharing, their own data.”So what do social media DO Harvard students use?? Anyone?
