So I’m not really into the Facebook thing, but occasionally I hop on and see what people are up to. I’ve noticed a few of my friends have some interesting looking apps on their profile pages, and figured I might try some of them out. Except for, every single one I’ve looked at so far insists on getting access to my complete profile. Why? I can’t imagine why an application that pops up pictures of cute cats needs to know where I live, for example, or why any application needs my birthdate. It should be easy enough to assign some random identifier to my account for most needs that these apps have, such as counting how many subscribers they have. Why do they want more?
