Great case study! I’ve been aware of this default for awhile, and have been surprised at how many friends share their location with me without knowingly doing so. I think you are right about the UI, and Facebook should make more of an effort to educate the user on this — I guess it’s in their DNA, and Mark has tried to be more privacy centric, but it’s another failed example of why Facebook doesn’t think about this before they launch.
