    • Yep exactly…I never find Facebook setting complicated! It gives you a lot of possibility to set up your account.

    • Zuck is a douche - May 25th, 2010 at 6:49 am UTC

      The problem with Zuck is that when he says, "We will never sell your data", he has a very different idea of what is "your data" vs "his data". For example, to the right of my is an ad for TechCrunh on Facebook. It says Tech Crunch has 51,991 fans on FB and it shows 10 fan photos. Every time I see this ad, I see 1 or 2 people out of the ten that I know and area friends with on Facebook. WTF? FB is obviously telling TC who my friends are, or at least providing an API to get one or two of my friends pictures. This is complete bullshit. F both of tyou.

    • I haven't been this excited over privacy settings since the I can remember*&@#*#@

      In all seriousness, I guess this is good. But ultimately we know that Zuck thinks his users are mindless fools.

    • And I bet the Open Graph is their main focus.

    • Facebook pulled a bait and switch on customers on short notice and made it really hard to opt-out of it. Now it's making it a little easier to opt-out of the bait and switch they pulled on short notice. How admirable.

    • I hope it is an Opt In policy instead of Opt Out.

    • Privacy is not just Facebook issue. It's internet issue too. So people wants to be alone and private in the internet and social sites?

    • This is yet another change in privacy options. I wonder what yet new changes in privacy settings users will have to re-inspect and change yet again…as usual…when privacy options change.

    • This is at least second strike for facebook and it abusing its power on peoples data. I've found myself thinking "Hey, I'll re-activate my account if they do this" but fortunately the sane side of my brain slaps me upside the head and says – "Don't be a fool, you know they'll pull this s**t again in 6 months". I'd actually pay monthly to stop app spam (farmville and mafia wars) and privacy, but that is real unlikely.

    • This is great news.

      I expect the new controls will be look more like "volume bass and treble" instead of the 40-band graphic equalizer we have to fiddle with now.

    • There is a new kid on the block giving FB a run for the money, and the money to the members! It's YourNight. Privacy, discount shopping, and an unbelievable member rewards program. Check it out, it's free. http://join.yournight.com/razor
