Internal Facebook emails shared with government regulators show CEO Mark Zuckerberg questioning some of the company's privacy practices, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that cited anonymous sources.
While the emails in question do not appear to show Zuckerberg advocating anything that would clearly violate the company's protections of user privacy, the discussions see the CEO debating the propriety of certain actions in a way that could feed negative perceptions about the company's attitude toward privacy, according to the report.
The emails are part of Facebook's efforts to provide information to the Federal Trade Commission as the agency investigates whether Facebook has complied with a 2012 consent decree over the social network's privacy practices.
