Facebook Privacy and the Holy Grail

It's like trying to give instructions to the two guards in The Holy Grail, Facebook Privacy that is.

Facebook:  “Okay, we'll reveal all of your private information to all web sites you visit!”

Me:  “No, please only reveal my info to my friends.”

Facebook:  “Ah, okay, we'll only reveal your personal info to your friends, and to our advertisers and all web sites you visit!”

Me:  “No, no!  Only to friends I specify!”

Facebook: “Okay, only to our advertisers and your friends.  And we'll reveal your Events to everyone!”

..., etc.
