Wow - didn't expect this from Facebook

Didn't expect Facebook to open the floodgates. Very clever to do it in the name of privacy and data ownership. Access control is always confusing. I guarantee that people won't realize that "everyone" means the whole world, forever.

in reference to:
"The Facebook privacy transition tool is clearly designed to push users to share much more of their Facebook info with everyone"
"Let’s make this clear. If you make your information available to ‘everyone,’ it actually means ‘everyone, forever.’ Because even if you change your mind, it’s too late — and although Facebook say they will remove it from your profile they will have no control about how it is used outside of Facebook."
