Facebook Graph Search – Privacy Concerns

One of the current users of Facebook Graph Search, Tom Scott, has started a Tumblr blog – actualfacebookgraphsearches.tumblr.com – to document its potential privacy train wrecks.

Scott wrote on Facebook yesterday, “I just got Graph Search and it’s actually so creepy that I’ve started this Tumblr to document it.”

Scott has things on his blog like, “Mothers of Jews who like Bacon,” “Married people who like Prostitutes…these people’s spouses,” and “Single women who live nearby and who are interested in men and like Getting Drunk.”

When Facebook launched Graph Search, it made privacy one of the key discussion points.  Many of the numerous studies done in recent years addressing internet users’ attitudes toward online privacy suggest that users say they are concerned about privacy, but most do not take substantial action to protect themselves online.

As Scott says on his blog, “Facebook does have good privacy settings: but there are many, many people who don’t know how to use them!”
