Facebook is looking to give you back a "little" bit of privacy
For those that have a Facebook account, but don’t like sharing all of your information with third-party apps, a new solution will soon be heading your way. Facebook today announced that it will provide an Anonymous Login option that allow you to block third-party apps from accessing your personal data.
The “Login with Facebook” button will be soon joined by “Login Anonymously”
However, it appears that developers will have to enable the functionality on their end first before you take advantage of Anonymous Login, as Facebook currently states, “We are testing Anonymous Login with a few developers, and we plan to open it up to more developers in the coming months.”
So while Anonymous Login sounds like a great idea to try out new apps without feeling like you’re putting all of your business out into the street, it may take a while before developers start implementing the feature (if at all).
You can see an overview of Anonymous Login here:
Facebook is also introducing the ability to have more granular control over the Facebook Login feature. With the new version of Login, users can pick and choose what information they want to share with an app.
The company has also introduced a redesign App Control Panel that hopes to streamline managing permissions for the apps you use on a regular basis.

Most people I know just have an alt account they use on an alt browser for that purpose. That's probably 90% of Internet Explorer users right there.
