It's Time To Revisit Your Facebook Privacy Settings...Again!

Every few months or so, Facebook announces a new milestone figure regarding their user numbers. Most recently, Facebook announced that it now has more than 500 million users around the globe, and all signs point to continued growth (some predict that Facebook could hit 1 billion members within a year).

Although this is great news for Facebook, other recent news highlights a very concerning event in which user data for more than 100 million members was downloaded, packaged in a file, and made available for download to anyone who wants it. Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions, you must know that this user information was not a breach of security, but instead a mass-download of personal information that users had chosen - purposefully or ignorantly - to leave visible to the public.
