Hey kids, let's play Facebook Privacy Roulette!

Let's put two Facebook tricks together to violate a random person's privacy:
  1. Type "http://graph.facebook.com/nnn" into your browser, where nnn is a number from 1 to who knows how big (try 4 and see who you get). If Facebook returns "false", try another number.
  2. Open up another browser tab or window and type in "http://zesty.ca/facebook/". When the page opens, type the same number (nnn) that you typed in step 1 above, and find every piece of public information stored about that person on Facebook.
  3. If you know your own Facebook ID number, type it in and find out everything that Facebook knows about you that it's making available to others.
  4. If you don't like what you see, change your privacy settings or disable your profile.
