Saving Us from Facebook (and Ourselves)  by Chunka Mui  (on  the Harvard Business Publishing website):

The paper starts from this:

“Stop worrying and learn to love the bomb.” That was Dr. Strangelove’s advice on nuclear weapons. Similarly, there are those who argue for a Strangelovian attitude toward technology’s erosion of personal privacy. They believe, essentially, that we should stop worrying and learn to love the lack of privacy. Scott McNealy, the (then) CEO of Sun Microsystems, captured this sentiment eloquently years ago, “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.”

“Prompted by audits and recommendations by the Irish Data Protection Commissioner, Facebook has agreed to deactivate its facial-recognition capabilities in Europe and to erase all facial-recognition data that it has collected for European users.”
