Okay, so what should I do?

    (links take you external to Facebook.com)

  1. Get un-friendin'
  2. Restrict what (if any) of your personal information your friends can share with 3rd party apps.
  3. Create layered friend lists with different privacy settings to more accurately represent and control your relationships.
