A few weeks back I put together a SlideShare deck on Facebook application settings. As a marketer, I knew how Applications worked inside Facebook, and that by “allowing” them, you give access to certain areas of your Facebook Account.
In going through and changing all my settings, I pulled together this info and shared it on our company blog Fifth Gear Analytics, and thought I would extend the same courtesy here. Be sure to pass this on – all those “game players” on Facebook who are planting crops and raising fish may not realize what is being learned about them!
Hopefully you found a nugget or two in there that put your mind at ease about your Facebook settings, and perhaps made a change or two to your account. I am much more mindful of the applications that I allow to connect with my Facebook account.
