I knew about this.
The article speaks of social network "influence" and "reputation". What exactly does that mean? Basing who you are as a person based on how many fucking FB friends you have? That is ludcrous, and sounds nothing short of a hoax.
FWIW, Facebook gets a lot of crap for their privacy settings, but I think people are just retarded and don't know how to use them. I've made it so it's impossible to find me (my super common name doesn't help either). I've tested it a few times just to make sure you can't see me. Some people I defriended a while ago thought I died in Iraq and my FB was deleted, I know because they asked another friend about it, lol.
