Would you Post Your Credit Score on Facebook?

I would advise against it, but this site lets you do just that. I understand that Facebook encourages (some would say it does more than encourage you, but I digress) you to spread private information about yourself to every corner of the internet. However, this is a little like teasing your social security number, one digit at a time, so thieves can have whatever access they need to your information.

These services can be useful under the right controls as a cheap first line of defense against identity fraud and similar scams. However, broadcasting any information about your credit or personal financial status defeats the purpose of the protection the company is offering.
