Ask Lisa – Clicking on Facebook Ad Redirects Me to a Form

Q: What do you think when you click on an ad on Facebook and when it redirects you it asks that it has access to all your info from Facebook? My alma mater has a post up and I clicked to “vote” but clicked away when it said it wants my info… that just doesn’t feel right or is that a norm? Thoughts?

A: Great question, I too don’t really like it when the application wants to pretty much take a blood sample and have access to all my friends and family members.  It feels icky.  Typically I read the fine print and I will search the application on Facebook and see who else is using it and what they say about it. In some cases I will accept the terms and then revoke access after.
