Don't get blind sided by Facebook data vampires




Did you know that many games and apps you use on Facebook actually could be stealing information about yourself? And sometimes your friends'? Of course, this depends on what your privacy settings are. (If you haven't already, set yours properly to protect your data.) Want to know what apps are the biggest offenders? Check out Privacyscore by PrivacyChoice where you can type in the name of the app to see its rating. Even better, if you dowload their Privacyscore app, it will show an app’s rating it asks for permission through Facebook.
