I’ve seen some rather rough criticism of Facebook over the years as they have lurched from one fiasco to another but this infographic, which I found on my cyberspace travels today, kind of sums it all up in a rather dry sarcastic sort of way.

No person or company is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes – that’s life and we need to learn from those mistakes so we don’t repeat them. But Facebook seems to be at the top of the “constantly making errors that annoy their users” list and the number one constantly repeating error for Facebook is ALWAYS privacy-related.
Whether it’s revealing a user’s information without their consent, using that information for commercial gain without your consent, or people seeing information of yours that they’re not supposed to see, there’s always something going on in Facebookland. In fact it was enough for Angela to write MakeUseOf’s first Facebook Privacy Guide. It’s essential reading if you use Facebook at all for anything. And we have written LOTS of Facebook privacy related articles in the past.
