Beware of “Friends of Friends”

"You’ll be able to check out the friends lists of fellow Xbox LIVE members right from the Dashboard."
The default settings – which can be changed on this page and later on from within the dashboard – are:
- "Everyone" for adults
- "Friends only" for teens (13-17)
- "Blocked" (private) for children (under 13)
I personally don’t like when default settings are exposing me to the public. It’s a matter of principle. Personal information of any kind should always be treated private at first, and then the user can decide if and how much will be published.
