from one of the comments in the link:

1) See how that puts you in a box of "people with private friends lists, or no presence on Facebook tend to be be bad credit risks." (Or at least not as "trustworthy" as those with public profiles.)

2) I see a market for a new "credit worthiness app" which will bypass that anyway - it only takes one of your friends to have it.

3) Facebook themselves could easily create their own "credit score" by combining credit data from credit agencies with their database and selling the score back to the credit agencies.


Remember: You don't control your data on Facebook. Facebook does. You are users of Facebook, but you are not their customers. You're on the menu as food.
