Seriously What a big fake message, users be clear by just sharing a link to facebook by no way one can have instant access to your personal facebook profile page. I talked some users who had been using facebook from a very long time and who have shared thousands of links. Yet there is nothing suspicious they have ever seen while sharing a link to facebook page.
Some times while giving permission to apps might give them the rights to view your personal profile and other details, still they can’t do anything without your knowledge. When you install / use apps like and you login with the facebook credentials, you may end up sharing some of your personal information with the new app, however this is limited and they might be and shared with other parties. If you do want to use them, take the time to find out what information will be collected and how it will be used before proceeding.
The current circulating message is just exaggerated and not possible as per facebook security features.
What you can do?
Keep a tap of the number of apps that you give access to login with facebook and check what permission you have view given this apps to see about you. Many apps require seeing all your personal information like email, phone, location, photo gallery and much other information. Beware before you authorize these anonymous apps with permission.
