Takin' Facebook Privacy To The Streets

Imagine a couple of strange guys came up to you in the street and demanded your name, email, phone number, political views, interests, an alphabetical list of your friends, and a collection of your best drunken and/or scantily-clad photos. That's exactly what happens in this video...
