Facebook under scrutiny

No surprise here.  A group of law students are ardent users of Facebook and have picked apart Facebook’s privacy policy.  I have always wanted stronger controls on my info on Facebook, but Facebook is not very forthcoming with features to limit my flow of information.  It seems like it’s in the best interests of the site to have our info available to potential 3rd party advertisers.

I like the connectivity that Facebook provides, but I hope this new investigation by the Canadian privacy commissioner will make some headway in forcing Facebook to be more privacy-friendly.
