But you have to give it your password to see what it does, right? So if you're concerned about facebook privacy, why would you allow this place to access your password to see how vulnerable your privacy is on facebook? It's like those inception memes.

FYI, you can go and remove access soon after so it no longer 'has' your personal information.

i already gave access months ago so i forget what it says, but it says on there before you have to do anything what it can do with your info, just like with any app.

honestly, i don't get what the big deal is. no one has any issues allowing bejeweled or words with friends or farmville to have access to their info. this site hasn't become so popular and been written about so much for them to make off with...what? everyone's names and dates of birth?

Did you see how many permissions it wants, though? The reason it can show you so much is because you let it see everything.

I don't know, I allowed it access and all I got was a black screen, then I went to privacy settings and revoked the access. I'm pretty sure its something harmless to make you more paranoid about nonsense.

Don't be a part of the masses, instead be unique and not have Facebook, thereby not feeding an oligopoly of online advertising out of nothing.
