Submission + - Facebook's New Privacy Changes: The Good, The Bad. (

Alt-F2 writes: Every Facebook user should be aware of the analysis made by EFF about the Facebook's New Privacy Changes;
"EFF took a close look at the changes to figure out which ones are for the better — and which ones are for the worse.

Our conclusion? These new "privacy" changes are clearly intended to push Facebook users to publicly share even more information than before. Even worse, the changes will actually reduce the amount of control that users have over some of their personal data.

Not to say that many of the changes aren't good for privacy. But other changes are bad, while a few are just plain ugly."
