Take this Lollipop – Disturbing Facebook App

Take This Lollipop plays on the fact that many people underestimate the power of social networks. Getting our name, interests, photographs of us, our friends, our family, and sometimes even our contact information, is as easy as offering a lollipop to a child.

Even if you’re already well aware of how much your online information could be being tracked, but you will never have seen it put into a context quite like this before. Click Take This Lollipop, select ‘allow’ and prepare yourself. In short, you’re about to see something very familiar.  Clicking ‘allow’ to accept an ‘app’ on Facebook is something our teens do with very little thought to what could happen.

If you would prefer not to click ‘allow’ until you know what you’re getting yourself into just watch the version above.
