Do You Know What Your Facebook Privacy Settings Are?

So basically Facebook has a rule that they aren’t able or willing to enforce. Facebook could phrase it such that they can and will delete applications in breech of their privacy policy but that goes against Facebook wanting to have more apps and more clicks on their social network. I informed Yvette of the bad news and she has some interesting counterpoints; “This is wrong, on so many levels. I have not formally endorsed a single commercial product, voluntarily… And, ethically, if I agreed to product endorsements in the FB TOS, I should be informed of what they are. False advertising. And, what if I am morally or contractually prevented from endorsing this or that product, then what? Troubling.” So Basically it falls on the end users to police Facebook and the application developers if they are breaking the Facebook privacy policy and using your images and likeness to sell their wares. Facebook claims these are “rumors” but they are not. But realistically if the setting for this was off by default, would you want to turn it on?
