Staying on top of Facebook privacy settings

Facebook has announced several new “features” to its sites.  One of them is the ability to click “Like” on external website which then publishes your preference to your Facebook profile as well as to your friends external news feeds as well.  This of course leaves a breadcrumb trail you might not wish to leave, identifying your interests, hobbies and opinions.

Don’t want to share this information?  Easy, don’t click “Like.”  For other “features” this article tells you their implications and ways to protect your privacy – such as you can.
