Storify shows Facebook privacy more illusion than fact

Antone Gonsalves | Jan. 23, 2013
Facebook passes the buck to users, but that is seen as an example of why privacy advocates want tougher restrictions on Facebook.

Some privacy advocates also want Facebook to provide full access to all data collected on a user, stop creating facial recognition profiles without user consent and cease tracking users across the Web.

Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports magazine, supports a national privacy law that would hold all companies to the same standards.

In the meantime, privacy advocates recommend maximizing privacy settings and to always assume that anything posted on Facebook can be seen by friends, family, employers, government agencies, health insurance companies and law enforcement.
