Today is my birthday (yeah, thanks, thanks)
A friend sent me an e-card through Facebook. I clicked on the link & in order to see the card I had to agree to the following:
THIS APP WILL RECEIVE: Your basic info Your e-mail address Your photos Friends' profile info: descriptions, activities, birthdays, education histories, hometowns, interests, likes, locations, relationship statuses, relationship details, religious and political views, websites and work histories Photos shared with you
You got to be kidding!
Why in hell would I agree to give all this information to an e-card company? The more I use FaceBook the more I just want to cancel my account.

They count on people not paying attention to that. Same applies to using your facebook log in to sign into a website. Ever see the information that tries to gather.
The truly infringing part is that you are allowing an app to gather what is in effect third party information from your friends without their knowledge. But at least you can go into privacy settings and block that.
