I always believe that any information you put in a computer connected to the internet can be available to anyone. If you value your personal life, then you should be very careful, because no one is safe in the internet. Companies such Facebook or Google has a lot of valuable information for a big percentage of the world population, whatever the ‘privacy’ they pretend to protect. They are business, and that’s their only objective.
This is a good news to facebook users like me. Privacy settings in facebook is always the issue since anybody got the chance to see each and everybody’s personal information. I am pretty sure that facebook users like me would be very happy about the new tool in facebook which is the request and removal tool. Facebook is really great and very user friendly. And it does make everybody in that social networking service very comfortable and happy. Thank you for the information!
