    Oh, another app that did a "facebook" (exposing personal data without consent, and yes I'll coin that term for me now).

    I wonder if I did receive email from Facebook according to GDPR leak rules. Oh w8, I do not click weird apps or any apps there. Oh w8, my fiends do. (My friends lost an 'R' by using those apps.)
    But w8, I do not have any real personal information on facebook. But w8, my fake information could have been leaked.
    I so do not know what to do now.

    But I am sorry for people who live on social media.

    Not surprising. I mean people freely have their personal information entered on the site but they also have no clue how to set their privacy settings so this does not happen.

    Your privacy settings controls public level of access to your postings, photos, ...
    Moment, you run facebook app and confirm its permission requests, app accesses anything you allowed it to. And privacy settings will not prevent it from doing so.

    I tried that app in the past few times, but later disabled any app interactions, it also deletes your data later.

    I'm glad I don't do any of those quiz things or games on Facebook. Literally, just use it to keep in touch with family and marketplace.

    Another reason I don't use this garbage.....

    "Anyone who wants to know what type of coffee someone is having should have a cup with them personally."

    Trying to not "face" someone..... This is where the world is heading for serious issues. People no longer being able to speak face to face any more because of this garbage.

    Sure these apps /programs are alright in some respects (like when I deployed all the time) to keep in touch with family, but these things have enabled people to rely to much on it all for interactivity.

    Pick up a phone and or go to someone's place and have fun..... This internet life is seriously messing people up....

    Best way to deal with Facebook is not having a Facebook account.

    I log in to Facebook about once a year. "Social" media is not for me.

    People have been socially messed up since ever. Internet didn't change anything. Some people should really check their memory.
