While I was there, I did a little looking around at the settings that
had been added without advising they had been added (Facebook,
anyone?). Note that several settings include privacy elements
(Facebook, anyone?), so you need to open each one, plus the subsets
for each of them, to finally get to the actually lockdowns in terms
of what is 'shared' with 3rd parties, advertisers and partners organisations.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
