Recently the user privacy have become the focus in people's daily life. Facebook is not the only one which has been accused to reveal the user's information undelegated, Myspace has been reported to share user ID data with advertisers too. There's also a study said apps are 'tracking' users. But why there are still so many users can't leave Facebook?

2007--"Your name, school name, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Facebook network unless you alter your privacy settings."
