Pet Society Diaries Go Public

A few weeks ago, Pet Society introduced a diary feature that told us all sorts of information about our pets. Today, those diaries became public, open to anyone in your Pet Society network.

This latest development strikes me as being a real violation of privacy, moreso than anything that Facebook has ever done. For all the criticism that Facebook receives, the site does allow users to control how much or how little of their information to display. Among the many options, there are ways to keep photos private, prevent random people from adding you as friends, hide your activities on the site and keep your game playing to yourself. But the new Pet Society diary totally blows that cover by showing how many times you've logged into the game.
