I don't do facebook apps: a note to my "friends"

This is just a note to let people know that I don’t “do” Facebook apps. No matter how cute or interesting the application, I will not use it. Every time someone invites me to play along with the application (zombies, superpokes, classmates, rate movies, etc.), I get this pop-up message:

Allowing (application) access will let it pull your profile information, photos, your friends’ info, and other content that it requires to work.

As if Facebook doesn’t have enough information, they want me to give my information to any third-party company that thinks up a great idea.

No thanks, Facebook.

So I’ll be your friend, but I’m not doing the app thing. Don’t take it personally.
