  1. Hi Don, I enjoyed yet again your very informative podcast. In the story about social media and access to data, I am surprised that so many people just allow third party apps the access to their Facebook account. I have not allowed any third party app to access my account unless I confirmed what I grant the app access to. Every new permission on Facebook state what type of access you grant to the third party app and I am always surprised that even simple app want access to everything. Unfortunately we live in a time where the term privacy is not cherished anymore by most people.
