Are you on Facebook? Are any of your friends or family part of one of the largest online communities in the world? If so, you may have seen or heard about the quizzes that are so popular on the site. But do you know just how much of your information these quizzes can access?
Even if your Facebook profile is “private,” when you take a quiz, an unknown quiz developer could be getting access to almost everything in your profile: your religious views, sexual orientation, political affiliation, pictures, and groups. Facebook quizzes also have access to most of the information on your friends’ profiles. This means that if your friend takes a quiz, they could be giving away your personal information, too.
