confusion amongst Facebook users is rife and comes at a time
when identity theft is soaring.
The poll was conducted in May 2012 and involved 680 Facebook users. It
found that 61% of respondents were concerned about
strangers accessing information they'd posted, and 59% said they
couldn't keep up with the number of changes Facebook had made to its

Take back your privacy
Yes, you can! Crypto is fast, simple to use and costs less than the
price of a good magazine or cup of coffee and a burger at your local
fast-food takeaway. You simply enter a 'secret key' and type
message. Click a button and the message is turned into meaningless
gobbledigook. Copy to your computer's clipboard and paste into Facebook
as you would any normal post.
here's the clever bit. Someone, perhaps a close family member or
friend, enters the same secret key into their own copy of Crypto and
copies and pastes your gobbledigook Facebook posting into Crypto's
message box. Click another button on Crypto and your secret message is
revealed. Simple! Very safe, too. Sure, the CIA or MI5 would no doubt
be able to decode your message, given the super computers and other
resources at their disposal. But not so for 99.9999% of Facebook users!
