Most of us use Facebook every day without always being fully conscious of just how leaky the social network’s default privacy controls can really be. This is not a good way to go about using Facebook. As the infographic above very clearly illustrates, the entire privacy landscape of the enormous social network is riddled with little trap doors that can invite all sort of leaks in.
