Facebook Profile Data that Anyone Can See

Here is a site that allows you to browse your Facebook Profile data as if you were a 3rd party.  I heard about this Zesty.ca page from TWiG episode 40. This Facebook data would be provided using their Graph API. A tip from TWiG episode 41 mentioned is how students have started using dummy data on Facebook–making up handles, silly locations, and bogus marital relationships to their teachers and whatnot. Jeff Jarvis makes an interesting point: Facebook is passing by and opportunity to champion actual privacy by not providing it–thus the more we assume we have no privacy on Facebook, the less honest data people will provide Facebook to begin with.
