What are Facebook Permissions?

Websites or applications that allow you to connect your account with Facebook must get permission from users to have access to specific data. In order to link your Shockwave and Facebook accounts, you need to give Facebook permission to share this information with Shockwave. You can change your permissions settings at any time on the Facebook Connect Settings page or the Application Settings page of Facebook.
