Facebook privacy concerns have been a topic of extreme coverage lately. In response to those concerns, four New York University students created an “anti-Facebook” project called Diaspora, which aims to put individuals users in complete control of their personal information.
The students pitched the idea as a summer project and aimed to raise $10,000, which they surpassed ten-fold. Among those that helped the students raise that nice sum of cash is Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
When asked why he donated to the project, Zuckerberg said that he saw “a little of myself in them,” Mashable reports.
What do you readers think is the reason behind his donation to the project? Do you feel that he wanted to help the project along or simply pick up positive press?
