Facebook data theft risk

"Personal details of Facebook users could potentially be stolen, the BBC technology programme Click has found.

The popular social networking site allows users to add a variety of applications to their profile.

But a malicious program, masquerading as a harmless application, could potentially harvest personal data.

Facebook says users should exercise caution when adding applications. Any programs which violate their terms will be removed, the network said"

There's a saying, 'If you can't shout it out in church, don't say it on the telephone.'

You should apply this rule equally to any internet site containing your personal data.

I have worked with people who could find out everything about you from just an e-mail.
