Starting today, I'm making some changes to how I deal with information on facebook. If you're curious as to why, please take a look at this article from Danny Sullivan about the most recent privacy changes.

In addition to locking down my settings, I'm also uninstalling all applications and ignoring requests for additional apps. I've always been a bit leery of Facebook apps, because you couldn't have granular control of their privacy settings. Now, you can't control it at all. If you're running an app, it basically has root on your account.

Sure hope you like sales calls on your cellphone. Prior buisness relationship? Why, facebook, of course.

I've never been a heavy facebook user, and this kind of shenanigans makes me tempted to ditch the service entirely. For now, I'm just going to lock it down, though I may change my mind later. You may want to take a long look at your settings as well.
