Facebook and privacy in the same sentence…

…but not in a good sense.

Clearly there's a lot of confusion about the detail of Facebook's latest changes, as suggested by MSNBC at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36877160/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/, though it's clear enough that they don't amount to a victory for common sense and user privacy.

But what do you do about it? Well, here's a good start.

Social Media Security have updated their Facebook Privacy and Security Guide to version 2.1, to reflect the changes. It's terse, clear and very much to the point And they'll be very happy for you to download it from http://socialmediasecurity.com/downloads/Facebook_Privacy_and_Security_Guide.pdf and share it with your friends and family.
