FaceBook app privacy scam

Once again FaceBook users are taken for a ride by the "Compare People" app, whose developer is now attempting to sell access to all your results for a fee.

My policy is not to give away personal information to a third party where possible, especially not if it's in an easily mineable format. This is the main thing that makes me nervous of FaceBook and nearly all of its (3rd party) apps.

Plus, now I just get spammed with meme requests, which I can turn off for each individual app, but not globally just auto-reject new app request notifications.
