“In an experiment, 41% of Facebook users were willing to divulge highly personal information to a complete stranger. This according to IT security firm Sophos, which invited 200 randomly selected Facebookers to befriend a bogus Facebook user named ‘Freddi Staur’ (an anagram of ‘ID Fraudster’). Of those queried, 87 responded to the invitation, among them 82 people whose profiles included personal information such as their email address, date of birth, address or phone number.”

This is  not too surprising, Facebook has always been at the forefront of privacy invasion, and I am surprised that anyone would actually use such a thing, but users these days never fail to be the sheep that they are. The only real social networking I do is on Youtube, that is better than Facebook for many reasons and you get to upload videos and get noticed that way. Facebook is evil and should never be trusted with any personal information.
