How well does Facebook know you?

And do you care?

Once again, Facebook is reducing user's ability to control how their personal information is shared.

"Certain parts of users' profiles, "including your current city, hometown, education and work, and likes and interests" will now be transformed into "connections," meaning that they will be shared publicly. If you don't want these parts of your profile to be made public, your only option is to delete them."

Some people think this is a really bad idea, others don't seem to care.

Librarians are generally advocates for protecting the privacy of library users - we don't share any information about what books you check out or anything like that.

Teens are a huge part of the Facebook community - what do you think?
