LIKE MOST OF THESE SITES AT THE END THEY WANT ACCESS TO ALL YOUR INFORMATION THUS NO MATTER WHAT YOU SETTINGS ARE THEY GET IT ALL FROM A FRIEND,
facebook is not entirely what we want for entertainment & social touch, sometimes it contains nudity and open adult contents, very bad for children. So its much like proceed at your own risk, rather than a fun park. plus those apps steal your precious data.
BE CAREFUL - apps.facebook.com DOES TRACK EVERYTING you do ON & OFF FACEBOOK.
USE REPUTABLE AD BLOCKER & ANTI TRACKING BROWSER EXTENSION/ADD-ON such as AdBlock Plus and uMatrix for Chrome and Firefox.
** Best NOT to use Internet Explorer for ANY web browsing due to IE's lack of BLOCKING TOOLS/ADD-ONS.
Be CAREFUL what LINKS/Facebook pages YOU and or your CHILDREN LINK/Browse to WITHOUT reading the APPS PRIVACY & SECURITY Policies first. And even then BE CAREFUL!

This domain host some thousands of apps some of which are designed for a younger audience however many are quite the opposite. Open social networks like facebook also pose child safety risks unless usage is very closely monitored an supervised
While the site is trustworthy with respect to malware and security issues there are a number of potential privacy issues.
Third Party Contact
This domain is the domain for the whole Facebook application platform which acts as a gateway to thousands of apps from hundreds of developers each with their own privacy policies and various amounts of personal information that they gather from your Facebook profile. Do your research on the developer(s) of the app(s) also and check out the reputation of the domain which is actually serving the app itself, many privacy addons for firefox, chrome etc will provide the details of all the external scripts and other interactive objects of the app where you can identify the publishers domain.
Facebook like all social media is a significant privacy threat, most of us have no real idea just how much we are truly revealing about ourselves with every simple like on a page to anyone willing to mine the data using modern statistical analysis which includes not only facebook themselves but anyone with an internet connection.
This is an issue worth highlighting but a comment isn't a place to go into detail on this subject. If privacy issues are a concern to you there is a good non technical overview in a video I saw online. Not sure if links are allowed but a Google search for Jennifer Golbeck Social Media Likes should pull it up.
Just be aware of what apps you have been using and what permissions you allow them to do with your account as there may be dodgy apps laying around that will try to spam or phish your account.
Other than that, there are legit third-party apps that might take some info from your account in order for the apps' features to work properly, but just know that the info is going through the business/person that is the owner of the app (not Facebook) when you allow these apps to access your account.
You can check here to see what apps you've authorised and their permissions being used on your account:
apps.facebook.com Has many fun online games to play like slots, farm epic, township, etc. Be wary of what you play though.
Careful about Twitter and Facebook connections. If you give the apps permission to post, they may do so to excess. However, children under 13 shouldn't have these accounts to begin with. There are some very child-friendly apps here.
