Paper criticises Facebook for privacy policy longer than US constitution, but its own policy is too

The New York Times has a good piece highlighting just how complex the privacy options and privacy policy have become for Facebook users.

However, the newspaper also criticises Facebook’s privacy policy for being longer than the US Constitution (or rather the US Constitution without amendments, which is a rather odd comparison to make; if you’re going to exclude amendments, why not exclude the amendments made to the Facebook privacy policy too?).

One thing the newspaper doesn’t mention though is that its own privacy policy is … also longer than the original US Constitution. Oops.
