Facebook and Privacy and Security

Facebook disclosed a new privacy blunder on Thursday in a statement that said the site accidentally made the posts of 14 million users public even when they designated the posts to be shared with only a limited number of contacts.

Privacy and security have never been a top concern for Facebook, when blunders like this happen it not only harms trust in Facebook, but the entire eCommerce and internet economy. Years ago my mother (who is more tech savy than I am) commented she would never put her credit card online, she now shops regularly on Amazon (where I work). Not sure why at one point I trusted Facebook, which has been so fast and lose with data protection and privacy with my credit card info, but just went through and removed it. You can remove your credit card from Facebook by following these instructions.
