Submission + - Facebook Graph Search Embarrassing Side-Effects (halls-of-valhalla.org)

halls-of-valhalla writes: "Tom Scott, a web comedian, has recently created a website called "Actual Facebook Graph Searches" (http://actualfacebookgraphsearches.tumblr.com) which demonstrates some embarrassing side-effects of the new Facebook Graph Search. It is apparently possible, and quite easy, to find amusing and embarrassing personal information about your friends by using Facebook Graph Search.

Some example searches are things like "Married people who like Prostitutes" and "Mothers of Jews who like Bacon". Tom Scott shows some screen shots and explanations for numerous amusing searches such as these on his blog.

This just goes to show that people share way too much personal info on their profiles, and they don't know how to properly use their privacy settings."
