    Thanks for passing this along. Yes, Adrienne Felt’s research note is helpful. The general point she raises re: Facebook’s Third Party apps has been raised before, but it is very constructive of her to add data to it.

    I took a longer look into this tonight. I found some prior complaints about the problem from earlier in the year. Also, I concluded that the sloppiness on Facebook’s part isn’t all about privacy; a substantial part is about UI.
