Facebook To Give Users More Control Over An Application's Data Access [news.bbc.co.uk]
Facebook has begun to roll out changes to the site in its efforts to appease critics of its privacy practices.

The change means that games and applications installed on a person's profile must specify what personal information they will access and use.

Interesting, but I wonder how many people will actually look at the details. I have an Android phone, and each app lists what info it is accessing (location, phone calls, etc.). I have to admit that even I (who should know better) often just click OK with barely a glance.
