I shared it on DesignerNews.co along with the following comment:

“Most people don't see the problem with giving lots of private information to a large company like Facebook so I created a website explaining some of the privacy implications. I've tried to be factual and link to sources.”

The web site doesn't have any tracking scripts, but judging by the HTTP requests to the server, the site has had roughly 25 000 hits this week. It's the number one story this month at DesignerNews and it's been shared on HackerNews, Reddit, and Twitter.

Fork it on GitHub:
