QUOTE: Playing its part in that has been security firm AVG, who have this week unveiled its PrivacyFix Family application which promises to keep families connected and safe while keeping their data secure on Facebook. The most interesting aspect of the launch is AVG’s use of Facebook social graph which broke cover a year ago. The feature harvests the social network’s vast data reserves to provide users and third parties with in-depth intelligence, and AVG claims it is the first company to use the feature for a privacy application.

AVG's system enables users to share Facebook privacy setting with each other even if they are not friends. Pegged for a full launch in the Facebook App Center later this year, PrivacyFix Family intends to keep the family unit connected and protected from snoopers and troublesome users. AVG claims the app will also encourage Facebookers not to ‘overshare’ and become targets for online miscreants using social profiling.
