It's a privacy issue the same way that where you go in your vehicle is also publicly available information ... but a third party slapping a gps device on your car and tracking everywhere it goes publicly (and how long it spends where) and then aggregating that information for someone to easily read ... crosses the line into invasion of your privacy. i.e. Making publicly available information available in aggregate, easy-to consume forms can (and often does, these days) cross the line; there's litigation on this topic, already, in a number of real world cases. (Not a threat, just a statement of fact.) I don't think anyone has a problem with the information, itself; I feel the problem is its new presentation. The data is now aggregated and slapped on people's profiles ... with no control of who can see it in that location like the other tabs in that location are able to be controlled. To wit, there are a number of privacy options we can set to control what tabs are seen on our profiles ... and by whom (using the 'profile privacy' settings). Shouldn't this tab be as controllable as the others in terms of profile privacy settings? Why isn't it? What harm is there in making it as controllable as the others, especially if it puts your userbase at ease? After you pare down/eliminate the friends' posts that are included you effectively have something that duplicates the 'find latest posts' link ... so I'm not sure of the value of the additional tab, anyway. At least that link isn't a tab that people see on your profile, but it's one click away from people using it. That's one click of obfuscation; it's not much but it helps. Again, presentation of the information seems to be the issue, not the data, itself. It's called 'My Profile' for a reason and people think of profiles as 'theirs'. Adding options to profiles that people can't control ... just raises hairs on people's necks.
