Are you letting Older Facebook Apps access TOO MUCH of your Data?
Applications that are pre-2009,collected a great deal more data than today’s current apps. Pre-2009 Apps collected contact information, photos, videos, and your friends’ information. Applications created after 2009 allow you to alter the sharing interests, friends’ lists and other personal information as a result of a legal settlement. In other words, you can opt out of the intrusiveness. Now go there and do it, and then come back here and comment.
