Default How to protect your Facebook data [UPDATED]

Some info from Sophos' Naked Security:

How to protect your Facebook data [UPDATED] – Naked Security
How do you protect your data following the ongoing revelations that Facebook can't, or won't?

CBS News notes that Facebook also may retain copies of “some material” from deleted accounts, but that it anonymizes the data.

Facebook also retains log data – including when users log in, click on a Facebook group or post a comment – forever. That data is also anonymized.

One type of data about you that you won’t be able to delete: anything posted by your friends and family. As long as your BFFs keep their profiles active, whatever they’ve shared about you won’t be deleted along with your own account. After all, it’s not your content. That includes, for example, the messages you’ve sent to others via the platform.
