More on Facebook Privacy…

…if that’s not an oxymoron…

Interesting article by Andrew Lyle at Neowin.net on Why you should rethink your Facebook privacy this year. Essentially, he explains how he was able to browse an awful lot of FB profiles belonging to complete strangers: his only connection with them was that he happened to be in the same airport or hotel. Could be a good time to check your settings using the Lockdown Guide I blogged about recently.

Hat-tip to F-Secure for the pointer.
