Facebook has extensive privacy settings these days, you can customize it down to which friend can see what. However, whenever one of your friends logs onto facebook mobile, all this goes out the window. Through Facebook Mobile, your friends can see EVERYTHING, even if they can't see it on a PC, and can even see the profiles of your friends! Nobody is talking about this and in my opinion its a very serious loophole. Being as most people these days use facebook mobile, it makes any privacy settings completely useless. Does anybody know if facebook has any plans to fix this loophole?

Privacy and Facebook go together like sparks and dynamite, with approximately the same end result.

I just tried this and I don't think it's true. I searched last week on the regular site for an old friend of mine, and she had only the most basic info on her profile. I can't see anything different on the mobile site - I can't even see a full size pic of her profile pic, or send her a friend request, just like the regular site.

If you need to block content from any of your "friends", then maybe you shouldn't be friends with them at all. If you are someone that is really concerned about privacy then you should probably not be a member of a site like Facebook.
