With the release of Facebook Graph Search a whole new layer of privacy has been peeled back and a new era of interesting accidental self-disclosure is beginning to flood the web. Since most Facebook users did not forse Graph Search there is a plethora of information that you can’t help but assume people would prefer not to be public. For example a list of married Facebook users who like prostitutes, or the site Ashley Madison.
Location + Profile Info + Interests
It gets even more interesting and intrusive when you start to combine location + profile info + interests. This is highlighted by a few of the more interesting searches shared by the Tumblr blog Actual Facebook Graph Searches and included below. Ever wondered how many guy men are on Facebook and live in Tehran? How about a list of the single girls nearby who like guys and getting drunk? When you start to grasp the type of relationships and information that is disclosed with Facebook’s Graph Search you can’t help but wonder if we are better or worse off because of it.
