Re: Surprised?
Unfortunately, this has been escalated to the point where too much data is acquired needlessly. I agree with this. For facebook more data is better, so result is not that great for the memebers.

Re: Surprised?
How is this surprising in any way? It is for me partially. We tend to not care about privacy that much if we get something out of it.

Personal data
It depends what we mean by personl data. If first name, last name and email I think i would sell it with quite low price, knowing that it is out there already.

Surprised?
How is this surprising in any way? There are only certain functions that require the use of personal information. Unfortunately, this has been escalated to the point where too much data is acquired needlessly. It paralyzes individuals into never wanting to provide personal data.
