    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.

    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.

    Well, it’s gald to read your post, but I wouldn’t understand your meaning well. Thanks all the same.

    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.
