Facebook will encrypt the emails it sends to you with PGP

Facebook, the social network where there's no such thing as too much information is handing another olive branch to the privacy crowd. The company has announced that it'll allow users to add PGP keys to their profiles, enabling them to encrypt the regular missives that the social network sends out. That way, no-one but you will be able to find out that Dave, the bully from junior high, has tried to add you as a friend twice this month. If you're wary about the legitimacy of Facebook's project, take comfort from the fact that one of the testers was noted security expert and former Tor lead, Runa Sandvik.
