facebook-addiction-syringe-1Facebook has been confronted with several privacy concerns lately and a new chart has been released to clear up any confusion someone may have in regards to their personal information on Facebook. Everyone and their mother is addicted to Facebook but who really cares about privacy? I know I do.

In an effort to help clear privacy setting issues up… a new chart has been revealed with all of the Facebook Privacy settings all laid out. After looking at the provided charts posted on the NYTimes website, it has still left me a bit concerned and scratching my head. You see, there is about 50 settings that have over 170 configurable options for privacy settings on Facebook. With that many settings I think it would be almost impossible to assured that your settings have locked down every shred of personal or identifiable information on Facebook with this many privacy setting combinations. It is almost like configuring the space shuttle for launch… images private… GO, wall private… GO, personal info private… GO, and so on.

Facebook’s Privacy Statements have increased from 1,004 words in 2005 to about 5,830 words this year in 2010. Wonder what else they had to express that took up so many words? That’s longer than the United States Constitution!
