Just a friendly heads up... Facebook and FB games are probably the biggest threat to your privacy that you've mentioned so far.
Download a good, free process manager and you can track whatever is running on your PC - even hidden processes. A packet sniffer will alert you if your PC is communicating with anything you don't want it to.
Having said that? If you're online, whatever you're typing/posting/sending - in any form? That's all in the pipeline and they don't need to have access to your keyboard or PC to have access to that. They already monitor the pipeline.
The CIPAV then settles into a silent "pen register" mode, in which it lurks on the target computer and monitors its internet use, logging the IP address of every computer to which the machine connects for up to 60 days.

I already know Facebook is bad about privacy, the fact that I play Facebook games certainly does not discredit me. I have nothing to hide, that's why I really don't care. Fear and paranoia are counterproductive to leading a fulfilling life. I'm just relaying FACTS about what I've researched and experienced.
