Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO, has announced new privacy settings after growing criticism that the social networlk has been insufficiently protective of user's personal informaton. Zuckerberg is a secretive figure who rarely gives interviews, but the BBCs technology correspoondent, Rory Cellen-Jones scored one yesterday and asked him about the privacy issue and some of the things he did in college.

Also, we're continuing our experiment with sharing information online. We're asking you: What benefit have you gotten from sharing information? How has it affected you -- good or bad?

Oh facebook, you never cease to happily surprise me.
You make me run into friends I thought I would never see again, let alone talk to.
You make my happiness reach its paroxysm when you found me my childhood sweet heart.
I can’t help indulging in exaltation your skyrocketing popularity, as a result.
I often get lost in conjectures as to your next revelations, but I am sure you’ll never cease to happily surprise me.
