Is Facebook killing your privacy? Some say it already has

Facebook has murdered privacy.
That's not just the contention of privacy watchdogs. That's Mashable's Ben Parr wringing his hands.
"Facebook has finally done it," Parr wrote. "It's just a few updates away now from euthanizing the concept of privacy."
Last week Facebook unveiled its dramatic redesign of profiles, a time line that charts in chronological order all the information users have shared on the service. Facebook also showed off new third-party applications that -- when enabled -- automatically share every action users take: every song they listen to, article they read and video they watch (not to mention every meal they cook and every jogging route they follow).
