First tool from Zesty… I do not understand the idea entirely. As if I do not know which of my data is public and which is not?:)) The Resumator!!:) Great tool. Right know creating something similar, so almost for sure I’ll grab some ideas from there. Future message?:) If those are send in the future than where they are stored? What data is stored?:) What is going on with that data? Interesting.Sync.in another great tool. In the office OneNote is awsome but here, well we have something more.

Hey Dawid,

The Facebook privacy setting are way too overwhelming for generic web users. Many users have already complained about that. The frequent updates/changes from Facebook side doesn’t help either.

I have to agree that privacy setting are way too overwhelming for generic users. But also those generic users every day submit to thousands of websites, accepting newsletters, rules agreements without even looking at those… Every day thousands of private data is just flying into the internet and no one cares. So why facebook is so different? Becouse as a one big website has millions of users? At least in this case there are people that are trying to resolve the issue. What about websites where there is no one responsible for the data?

Good point, after all it’s really a responsibility of the user to go and thoroughly analyze privacy settings.

I think why everyone is so angry with Facebook is because they, Facebook people, know that users rarely pay attention (or want to deal with) complex privacy settings. They will click yes/ok on whatever pops just to continue with their business.
