    Done. Thanks for passing this on. I hadn’t even noticed that Facebook had set this places thingie up, let alone realised that it had rather more privacy issues than usual for FB.

    This is the thing I don’t like about Facebook … the way new features are introduced under our radar.

    Justin Smith’s comment to CNN in the link is a little bit irksome: “It seems every time Facebook adds a new feature, it takes people some time to accept it and feel comfortable with it.”

    Like FB knows best and it’s our job to embrace the changes. GRRR.
