Apps privacy concerns
When you add applications, your public profile information will be shared through the application with:
- The application third-party developer
- Your friends who see your updates on Orkut
- Any other viewer or user of the application, whether on orkut.com or another website where the application appears
Note that you can choose to keep your friends from receiving updates from an app you've added to your profile, by changing your permission settings. When you add an app, simply uncheck the Post updates to my friends option. You can also change this setting later by clicking the settings link on the top of any app page.
