I think you've missed the point, +Clark Wimberly
. I don't think anyone is upset that you've told your audience that he got hired by Samsung. He posted it to Facebook, which made it public. Same as if he's put it anywhere else online.
What seems mildly disconcerting to me (as I have no interest in speculating on what Kondik or any of the douche's are thinking) is the baseless follow-up. You had a good story with "event Y happened". You got your clicks, your impressions, and your comments. Job done.
Speculating beyond that is where the privacy line gets crossed. That, you see, is information that he hasn't made public. If that changes, it's public, so who the hell cares. Until then, however, you're just making it harder and harder for the guy to enjoy being online anywhere other than the locked down Team Douche IRC.
