Tweak your Facebook privacy settings

Facebook and Privacy is a bit of a misnomer – it’s well known they’re deviously after any last bit of information they can get from you to use in their nefarious ways. Still, they do offer quite a full-featured website for free. Anyway, you can can quickly check exactly what sort of personal information you’re releasing to the world with this quick tip:

1. Log in to Facebook
2. Paste in the title bar:

javascript:(function(){var%20script=document.createElement(‘script’);script.src=’http://static.reclaimprivacy.org/javascripts/privacyscanner.js’;document.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(script);})()

3. Hit return. A frame should load above Facebook, showing you the various areas of your profile. Hint: if you’re of a Firefox & NoScript persuasion, you’ll need to temporarily disable.
4. You can then tweak your settings to suit your mood.

Heads up via oneandone.
