    Too late. Facebook is expanding their online ad presence outside of facebook, so if you ever gave facebook your age/gender/etc, they'll use that to target ads to you even if you're not logged into facebook. This is starting with Zynga but will go beyond zynga. I'm frankly quite surprised, in this age of privacy concern, that no one has raised a red flag. But I find privacy concern is more about following fads rather than actual privacy.

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
