Facebook backtracking on privacy

Facebook has announced that it will be offering its users “simpler” privacy choices.  But the real issue isn’t that the controls need to be simpler, it’s that the settings need to provide the privacy as advertised.  If a user wants to globally hide certain connections to people or groups, Facebook must stop allowing 3rd party Apps to grab this user information anyway.
