privacy on facebook

ok this started out as an experiment, but the more i think of it, the creepier it gets.

i was idly browsing my facebook wall when i noticed pictures of a wedding. i didn't recognize the bride or the album thumbnail, so i decided to browse the pictures. they were of a very cute couple getting married with hot friends (the maid of honor was sucking flowers and all). what struck me as odd was that i didn't know those people. a friend of mine commented on the pics, and since i'm a friend of a friend, i got to see the album. not only that, but i had the option of posting the album on my wall. so now my friends could see it. friends of friends of friends. i wonder if they can post it again.

so i did a little more experimenting. i sent an album invite to another email i have which isn't on facebook. didn't go through. i sent it to another dummy account i created on facebook to see what non-friends can see on my account, and it did go through. hell i wanted to post it here, but that doesn't work.

so bottom line: facebook owns you now.
