Salad Sweepstakes Leads Many to Toss Privacy to the Wind

My grocery store salad-in-a-bag came with a coupon this week that included a code number that I could use to enter a sweepstakes through Facebook. It seemed harmless until I checked it out. Turned out I would have to install their dedicated application and share my Facebook information with the salad company. About 50,000 people had already loaded the app, apparently unconcerned about salad people rummaging through their personal communications. I decided I didn't really need a $40,000 trip for four to New York City.
