Can Facebook Be Private?

This is the article I mentioned during our latest show...it's in the July edition of PC World: Can Facebook Be Private?

"...Facebook will warn you that the app can access your personal data, but it won't tell you exactly what personal data that app uses...

"...if a friend installs an app, the program will by default be able to see anything you've shared with that friend...

"...create a list of friends, then restrict content-sharing to certain lists...

"...Facebook's profile preview tool: Go to Settings, Privacy Settings, then Profile, and type a friend's name in the box up top. You'll see your own profile as it would be viewed by that friend, and can then adjust your privacy settings accordingly."
