bfdk Tech: When FB friend reqs become sinister... (53* d) RE: Tech: When FB friend reqs become sinister... 23 Sep 10

I came across this piece of news yesterday, and I must admit I find it rather sinister, having always been very private about whom I share what information with.

In combination with the other new feature, where you can no longer block, but merely 'postpone', accepting a friend's request, I see loads of possibilities for various kinds of abuse. The Danish article where I first found the information states that the features haven't as yet been introduced here, but are expected to be in the near future. It should, however, be up and running in the USA already.

Does anybody have any experience with these new features? I'm of a mind to close my account completely, if I can no longer control who has access to my information.

Best wishes,
