Facebook can't tell a friend from a hole in the ground

Burton Group's Ian Glazer has done some follow-up on his "Privacy Mirror" Facebook application with more shocking results. Evidently, if you and one of your friends both add the same application then the application treats your personal data as if it were also a friend - ignoring your "application privacy" settings. And it does this without informing you in any way.

Not good. Not good at all.
