Illustration for article titled Graphic: Facebook's Ludicrously Complicated Privacy Settings

Facebook has 50 settings with more than 170 options...just for privacy. The absurdity is charted here thanks to what surely took a team of supercomputers and thousands of sacrificial interns at the NYT. [NYT]

I don’t know why anyone even bothers with those privacy settings in the first place. If it is private information DON’T put it on the internet. Fact of the matter is, that anyone who really wants to see your privet info and photos will find a way around it. Setting privacy filters only gives you a false sense of security that causes you to post things you really shouldn’t be posting in the first place.
