Life Without Online Privacy, Part 2

My colleague Eric Fair helpfully mentioned an additional EFF resource for Facebook users:

"How to Opt Out of Facebook's Instant Personalization"
Facebook changed its privacy settings layout, making it a bit more challenging to opt out completely. As before, unchecking the "Allow" box is not sufficient because you need to block each Instant Personalization website to fully opt out.
And for what it's worth, I'm not the only librarian with FB concerns.

Just yesterday, Woody Evans gave an online presentation called "Why Librarians Should Stay the Hell Away from Facebook."

His talk was part of the Innovation in Libraries for the Twenty-First Century conference.

It's your personal info! Be safe. Be smart.
