  • This Creepy App Isn’t Just Stalking Women Without Their Knowledge, It’s A Wake-Up Call About Facebook Privacy [Update] | Cult of Mac
    Yes, yes, I'm going on about on-line privacy again. If you've ever thought that I'm over-egging the pudding in regard to Facebook privacy, then I urge you to read this. It's easy to say "well, they should have been more careful with their profiles" but the truth is that they should have *had* to have been more careful. Building a tool like this simply should not be possible. And on the one hand, hats off to Foursquare for killing it dead already, and on the other, at time of writing this linkpost, Facebook have get to respond to the fact that it's their on-going advertiser-lead drive to get people to share information publicly that enabled this creepy, creepy piece of crap.
