Security: Facebook Users Warning

One of the Swedish news pages in English today posted an interesting warning to some 400.000 Swedish users of facebook. I think there is something to consider. Here is the citation:
A Swedish government IT advisor has warned the country's estimated 400,000 Facebook users that the networking website's terms and conditions amount to a "slave contract."

Pär Ström, a member of the government's IT Council and integrity spokesman at think tank Den Nya Välfärden, says the 13-page contract users agree to when joining Facebook gives the US company rights over their personal information and photographs.

"People think it is free to join, but you pay with your personal integrity and your future. When you apply for a job in 30 years, the recruiter will be sitting there with what you have written," he told Metro.

I am out of facebook.

There's often some kind of a trap in many things that are "for free".
