Here’s how Facebook is supposed to work: When you don’t want to be someone’s friend anymore, you unfriend them. Or, if you just want to keep certain things private, you can adjust their access settings. The ability to back out of a friendship is as vital online as it is off, which is why this is worrying: British security researchers Shah Mahmood and Yvo Desmedt have found a simple way to create un-unfriendable zombie accounts (via the Arxiv blog). Here’s how it works:
1. Make a new account
Using an existing account works too, but the trick requires near-constant deactivation.
Before you’ve even sipped your morning brew, a regional German court has delivered yet another stern judgement affecting a multinational organization. This time it’s Facebook back in the dock over the Friend Finder feature, which uploads a user’s contact list to Zuckerberg’s bunker without proper warning. Another offense involves the ownership of data — any original photo or music track uploaded to Facebook supposedly belongs to the company and can be used however it likes, which has now been deemed to breach data protection laws. Someone ought to add this to [...]
Facebook officially took the “beta” label off its much-publicized Timeline this evening, but it’s rolling out the new feature gradually. New Zealand is currently the only country to get Timeline, the company said in a blog postthis evening. Other regions will get it in the “near future.”
Facebook first unveiled Timeline in early September, and quickly provided the means for developers and curious users to enable the feature. A more general release was planned for later that month, but it never came, ostensibly to address technical issues and privacy concerns having to do with the software.

This is something we’ve been trying to get rid off since Facebook. Random, anonymous or mostly unwanted friends tag you in photos where you really don’t want to be tagged.

Do you have hundreds of friends on Facebook? Then it’s a good idea to take the time to organise them into different groups, or lists as Facebook describes them.
Lists can be used for privacy reasons – to exclude certain status updates, for example – or simply to simplify the sharing of links, photographs and status updates with a common group of people, such as your family members.
When referring to other Facebook users in your status updates, you can create a link to that person’s profile quickly and easily – just type @ followed by the first few letters [...]
It seems like the ongoing rivalry between Facebook and Google has taken a turn for the subversive. Last night, a spokesman for the social network confirmed to the Daily Beast that Facebook paid a top PR firm to spread anti-Google stories across the media and to encourage various outlets to examine allegations that the Mountain View company was violating user privacy. The PR firm, Burson-Marsteller, even offered to help blogger Chris Soghoian write a critical op-ed piece about Social Circle — a service that allows Gmail users to access information on so-called “secondary connections,” [...]
