This Joke Facebook Game Hits A Little Too Close To Home

Want to auto-append "PRAISE JESUS" to all your Facebook status updates? How about auto-upload all your naked selfles to your profile? No? Then better change your Facebook Privacy Settings -- fast.

That's the premise of the new game "Realistic Facebook Security Simulator," created by UK-based website Us v. Th3m. The game generates increasingly surreal supposed Facebook privacy settings -- which players must check, uncheck, opt into or opt out of before a timer ticks down.

Like Us v. Th3m's more famous game "You Can't Do Simple Maths Under Pressure," the "Realistic Facebook Security Simulator" makes good use of the clock -- putting pressure on players to quickly change their settings before their lives are ruined by tagged double chins or suspiciously well-notified burglars.

Be warned: The ever-ticking timer and the deceptively Facebook-like interface can cause surprisingly real panic while playing.

Check out some screen grabs of Us v. Th3m's new game below, and try it out here.
