Facebook getting ‘creepy'?

By Published on .

In a recent post on his “Scenes from the Superhighway,” blog Chris Kenton writes that Facebook may be going too far in privacy efforts – or lack thereof. “This week, something happened that really made my antennae go up,” Kenton writes in the post, which is called “Facebook's Engineered Privacy Loopholes.” “I logged into my account, and a helpful little dialog box appeared, displaying two private email addresses that I use, and have never linked or associated with Facebook. Facebook wanted to know if they could link those accounts to my name. WTF? 1) Where did they come up with those addresses? 2) How did they associate them with me? Any answer you come up with is creepy.”
