Is anyone else getting Paranoid? – Facebook Edition

Nervous borrowed from ideaseller.comI think one of the first main attractions of Facebook was that it was simple and easy, safety/privacy was never even a thought. Now before we even talk about when Facebook opened it’s platform, there was an e-mail/message going around that said you can block and choose which options of your Facebook Profile were public and what can never be shared. That was nice and comforting that we had an option.

However, now Facebook is an open platform AND I want to use some (and very few) of the “applications” that exist and I already do. However, more and more “companies” are getting into the game. How much screening does Facebook actually do for their applications? Who is seeing my information? Also, there are Desktop applications (ie, screen savers, notify apps) and I virus scanned them, but I’m still hesitant. More importantly with Facebook now linked to my other usernames and passwords, including sites that have my credit card on file, how safe is my information?

In today’s news Facebook later this month will be open to Search Engines, how much will Google really see? How long is it before someone hacks in?
