Openbook – Privacy Hunter for Facebook Public Status updates

Have you ever made a check whether your facebook account and the status updates you do are in reach only for your friends and family members ? If not, then do it now. Tighten your facebook privacy settings. Otherwise your facebook status updates will be read by anonymous persons who dont have facebook account even.

Openbook lets you search public Facebook updates using Facebook’s own search service. Facebook’s bait-and-switch  on privacy and their overly complex  settings cause many users to post messages intended for their friends to ‘everybody’.That’s the entire planet, for all time. This privacy-malfunction could have serious consequences if you’re looking for a job, applying for college, or trying to get medical insurance.

Behind Openbook Development:

Will Moffat, Peter Burns and James Home, Facebook users concerned about privacy. They are website developers based in San Francisco.

The 3 important things they want facebook to do are,

  • Make it easy to control and understand your privacy settings.
  • Promise that they won’t change them behind your back.
  • Make new accounts private by default.

They have a simple proposal to facebook founder mark zuckerberg and his team to provide a privacy and security from the base level itself, to enjoy the facebook experience without any privacy concerns.

The site do have some a rough statement by Mark Zuckerberg got published in a news website says “They ‘trust me’. Dumb fucks.“.
