What is this?
I Shared What?!?™ is an information sharing simulator that let's you see the information you would share with a Facebook App or Facebook Connect, using permissions you set.
It's not possible for us to show what you've actually already shared, because we weren't there when you shared it.
We also can't detect exactly what you would be sharing at specific websites because those sites might vary their permissions at any time, just as our simulator adjusts the permissions we request when you change the settings on the permissions page.
What we do is show you in detail exactly what information Facebook shares using specific permissions. We do that by requesting those permissions via Facebook Connect, getting all the data we can, and displaying it to you, in your browser.
You can change the permissions to explore what each setting actually means.
Is this Safe?
We never send any of your information to anyone.
Facebook Apps and Facebook Connect
Facebook Apps are applications that run within the Facebook website, such as We're Related, Movies, and Mafia Wars.
Facebook Connect is a service that allows Facebook users to log in to other websites—such as CNN, CBS.com, Digg, Yelp, and YouTube—using a Facebook login, but without revealing the password to the website. When you use Facebook Connect, you also give those websites permission to access your Facebook information and to use that information to customize their website for you.
Similar permissions are given to Facebook Applications when you use them. For simplicity's sake, when we refer to "websites", we also mean any Facebook Application.
If you want to see what websites you've given permissions to, visit your Facebook Application settings page.
