So I deleted almost all of my personal profile info from my Facebook account, including the list of all my previous employers (which I put up mostly as a reminder next time I have to update my resume).

Got that? Deleted all the information from MY account profile, not just the visibility settings. I can no longer access that information, because I deleted it.

Or so I thought.

Today Facebook offered to suggest potential friends for me based on ALL of the deleted entries in my employment history. It is actually using private information about ME which even I do not have access to.

Is Diaspora ready yet? Sigh.
