STMA: Quit Facebook

BLUF: Delete your Facebook account.

I would like to make everyone aware of some interesting changes in Facebook’s privacy policy:

You also have a set of publicly available information, which helps your friends find and connect with you. This includes your Name, Profile Picture, Current City, Gender, Networks, Friend List and Pages.

This is an unacceptable change to account privacy. If Facebook wants to publish that information, they need my consent and they do not have it. I have deactivated my account and I would urge you to do the same.
