In spite of recent concerns about privacy and surveillance on social media, most of us are extremely lax about our public/private boundaries on the biggest network of them all: Facebook.

A third of us haven’t checked our privacy settings in a year or longer — in spite of the fact that Facebook changes those settings and policies quite frequently.

And we’re giving away our information to companies far more than we realize. Sixty-one percent of us have no idea how many companies have the keys to our Facebook profiles via app permissions and Facebook logins.

Don’t even get us started on passwords.
