Openbook - Facebook Dorks?

Found this really powerful - interesting information displayed when searching with simple terms

What is Openbook?

Openbook draws attention to the information Facebook makes public about its users via its search API. Facebook exposed this service on April 21st, 2010.

Our goal is to get Facebook to restore the privacy of this information, so that this website and others like it no longer work.

If you have questions, or are a media person, you can email Will and Peter at:

This website is a parody, and has no relationship to Facebook.

·  What has Facebook done wrong?

Facebook has made two clear mistakes here. First, they do not do a good job of indicating how public each piece of information you share on the site will be.

Second, they change the rules far too often. If you understood Facebook's privacy settings two years ago (or even six months ago) that information would be worse than useless with today's bewildering settings.
