What's it do? I'm not just going to allow it access.

Nothing. It's just a gimmick showing you how much personal stuff can be viewed through facebook via a video once you click allow. That box is just a gimmick.

I'm scared to even click on it. I have my privacy settings high, but I have no doubt that things are being shared that I am not aware of. I have been taking a lot of info off of my profile for that exact reason!

If I wasn't living on the other side of the world to 'home' (and so seeing photos etc is nice - even some of the more mundane updates and check ins and whatnot are enjoyable) I would absolutely be canning Facebook. As it is, my profile is about as private and 'empty' as you could get. No personal or contact information, no 'likes', not even any photos beyond my profile pic.

maybe zuckerburg is the antichrist?

I didn't check that link out because I have enough that keeps me up at night without adding fuel to the fire

I too have my security settings reasonably high but am sure that there are means and ways of people finding me if they really really want too and maybe sometimes I am guilty of a little too much complacency

one of the things that niggles at me is the fact that fb keep a record of passwords ~ I have changed mine a few times and recently changed it again as a friends account had been hacked and, in the odd unthinking moment when I enter the old one facebook will tell me

To add to Headache's post - Failbook will also casually exploit it if you do. And you might need to get new friends.

Facebook has security settings? I've barely played around with mine since I joined, so thats a bit of a scary thought. Ah well. What'dya gonna do?

I try and subscribe to the 'if you wouldn't want your mum to see it don't post it' mantra and as for my kids? I check their fb and twitter from time to time just to make sure there's nothing there that could come back and bite them . . . tumblr on the other hand . . . pah, whole different kettle of fish!

don't share shit you don't want people to see. no matter your privacy settings, if you're like most people and use the same password for everything, shit can still get out.

stuff like my twitter and my facebook are all things i don't mind people knowing. sometimes it can make me look a bit silly, but i wouldn't put it out there if i wasn't happy with it out there.

and the video can make a good point, but the fact is you click on a big button that says "i'm happy for this to trawl through my stuff" to achieve the lack of privacy effect.

Which is exactly why I didn't use it, so didn't see what it does.
