Facebook Apps , Sell Personal Info
Many of the most popular applications
, or "apps," on the social-networking site Facebook Inc. have been transmitting identifying information—in effect, providing access to people's names and, in some cases, their friends' names—to dozens of advertising and Internet tracking companies, a Wall Street Journal investigation has found.

I always thought those friend "quizzes" were quite suspicious. I still enjoy Facebook though, I just don't use it daily.

I stay far away from social networking sites. Don't enjoy being a target and having personal info spread about.

Did you ever delete your local shared objects like I suggested Vet? They are used for tracking as well.

Duh.

It's called reading the prompt you're given before installing. Most people are too stupid to read it or even understand what it says. If your "Friend" installs an app he's basically giving that company the right to all of YOUR information as well.

no shit sherlock
The storm is closing in to begin again from the beginning. Never sitting through my waking life oblivious. The ignorance running rampant through the city is indicative of something worse; this picture isn't pretty.
