AUSTIN (KXAN) – When Andrea Beleno gave birth to her son last year, she knew she’d do whatever it took to protect him.

But she never dreamed she’d be taking on the State of Texas to safeguard her son’s most private information.

And now, revelations are surfacing that not only did the state store that blood without parents’ knowledge – but they also actually bartered it for goods and services to for-profit companies, without the knowledge of parents or of state lawmakers.

Beleno and several other Texas families sued the State Department of Health Services after they learned the agency had been storing and using newborn blood samples, or blood spots, that were leftover after testing for the Newborn Screening Program.

The ‘end of privacy’: Facebook founder

Notions of privacy have radically shifted due to the popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook, according to its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The 25 year-old Facebook CEO, who was speaking at an awards ceremony in San Francisco, said that privacy was “no longer a social norm” and that “people have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people”.

According to a report in the Guardian newspaper, Zuckerberg’s comments are “not surprising” considering massive changes in Facebook’s privacy settings that affected many of the site’s 350 million users.

Zuckerberg said that when he started the site in 2004 for fellow Ivy League students, notions of privacy were vastly different.

He said people were less likely to want to share personal information with strangers on the web, but in the last “five or six” years the explosion of personal websites and blogs had redefined our privacy boundaries.

But the question remains whether notions of privacy have changed due to Facebook pushing users to be more open, with initiatives such as the introduction of the ‘news feed’ in 2006 — or whether the rise of other tools such as blogging has led to internet users becoming more relaxed with sharing information.

Marshall Kirkpatrick, of the technology industry blog ReadWriteWeb was quoted in the Guardian as saying that Facebook has been “complicit in ….changing the way people think about online privacy.”

Technology expert Om Malik had previously described changes in Facebook’s privacy settings as creating an equivalent of a “quasi-White Pages of the Web.”
