I didn’t watch Mark Zuckerberg’s 60 Minutes interview. There was really no need to when I knew that it would be dissected and digested by the blogosphere today. Still, I decided to go back and take a look when I saw TechCrunch highlight this Zuckerberg statement:
The ripping the scab off the wound moment of the night came with Beacon, and if I’d been sitting on a chair I would have fallen off it, and not due to jet lag. Asked about Beacon and as to whether users who signed up to connect with friends now felt that they were “snooped upon” Zuckerberg responded that “Beacon makes Facebook less commercial.” WTF? You can draw your own conclusions on that.
