re: Facebook Privacy: 5 Most Ignored Mistakes
I've observed that far more people have made their full profiles, walls, etc. visible only to friends. That's progress. I think what's really confusing to users now is the use of Facebook and other social networking apps as a sign-on for other apps. I think the implications of doing so aren't fully understood.

re: Facebook Privacy: 5 Most Ignored Mistakes
Facebook and its ilk will go down as one of the biggest social experiments in history. I think entire generations of "Facebook Friends" are going to seriously regret the trail they left behind when they finally grow up and realize the damage they have done.

Information is information and you'd be really surprised at how publicly gleaned data is being used. Take a look at the insurance industry for one. They've successfully screwed the health care industry for everyone. They did it with data. I can just imagine the euphoria that all this social data has given the lawyers, PACS, and lobbyists over at the "exclusion" department. Just saying...

I wonder how much of number one was affected by the switch to Timeline. I have observed some people who are friends of friends on Facebook whose privacy settings no longer seem to be as strict.
