Privacy on Facebook is essentially a myth at this point. They keep adding and changing settings to make users feel like they have control over who can see what they're posing, but in reality anything you put on Facebook, regardless of settings, has the potential to wind up in the public eye. It can even happen if you're related to the creator of Facebook . Randi Zuckerberg, Mark Zuckerberg's sister, had a photo she posted privately go public on the Internet. If a member of the Zuckerberg family can't even get some privacy on Facebook, what hope is there for the rest of us?
Not too long ago, three of Joystiq's top editors left to found a new gaming site under the Vox Media umbrella. Following that, Kotaku's editor-in-chief, Brian Crecente, departed his site as well. Now, along with a few other names the games journalism industry is sure to recognize, the new team has come together under Vox Media's new gaming site (currently unnamed) throwing their hat into the games journalist ring, not only promising fresh content, but as Justin McElroy put it, offering a site that's "as fun to play with as it is to read." Currently, the site doesn't exist, and they're posting under The Verge banner until it does.
Three of Joystiq's top editors are leaving the venerable video games blog. Still one of the Internet's bastion of credible, entertaining video games journalism, Joystiq probably won't miss much of a beat, though Justin McElroy, Griffin McElroy and Chris Grant will be sorely missed. Grant is leaving Joystiq to found a new site under Vox Media, its video games vertical, under which the The Verge recently launched. The McElroys, who you may know from the My Brother, My Brother and Me podcast, have not yet stated where they're going, though the timing of the three departures would suggest that they may be joining Grant under Vox Media.
