Do you USe Facebook?

I was chatting to my little cousin recently and the topic of Facebook. Namely why I don't have a facebook account.

I used to but I canceled my account. I will pause now to observe a moment's silence for all those brave souls who fought to keep their personal details private. In the meantime, ignore the jeering from those in that corner, the ones yelling "I told you never to join."

So I canceled my account but am not sure if my details are lurking anywhere on their servers.

Well, to elaborate on the issue of privacy that haunts Facebook, me being the worldy-wise cousin, I did a google search for some articles.

And came across this little gem of an animation. A very well-done and concise animation about some of the privacy issues surrounding Facebook. Good job there!
