I think you might have missed the point, which is that other sites DO have more respect for your privacy than facebook. The others aren't perfect mind you, just better.
You see when Facebook resets your privacy settings, it affects whether EVERYBODY can see the stuff you thought you had made private to share with just friends.
The internet isn't a secret program. There's a service called archive.org that stores a lot of information from old, defunct sites, which is actually pretty helpful when an old link to an html page goes bad, though it usually doesn't help if the link is to a non-html file like a pdf, archive file, etc. It's no secret though.

Oh yah, its called the internet. As far as I know everything ever typed on line is in storage somewhere, right?

If you don't like it, then make at least the slightest effort to seek alternatives.

Im so glad i ditched facebook years ago.
Now i do this new thing called "going and seeing my friends" - I have loads to talk about and the graphics are amazing!
Sorta like that apple policy south park where *i know i know calm down, i realize south park is particularly silly but....* one of them gets an iphone and apple comes round and abuses them "because you agreed to it" (accepted without reading was the point).
Facebook does have me by the balls still as i cant delete my page because them i would lose friends new numbers and such, since they are round the world i cant just pop over etc.
