Facebook Privacy: What Your Friends Can Share About You

Probably the most troubling of all of Facebook's new privacy options is the section on "What Your Friends Can Share About You". 

If someone you have as a friend visits a site, Facebook will not only share their information with that site, but will also share your information with them. 

For example, if they visit a greeting card site, it will remind them to wish you a happy birthday if its close to your birthday. 

I've chosen to disable all of the items that can be shared. As much as I trust my friends on Facebook, I don't know what sites they are visiting.
