    I think people aren’t aware how much information they give a third party when they install a facebook app.

    Whilst facebook have closed many of the larger oversights, often people do seem to think that apps are part of facebook, and give them far more trust than they really should.

    I can’t remember the last time I install a Facebook app. They are just not trustworthy anymore and Facebook don’t seem to care.
