I don't do those memes anymore. Not after someone pointed out that doing them reveals info useful for ID theft. Like your birthday (and favorite color is often a security question)

Yeah I've heard that too, but this one seems harmless enough. I mean, month and day of your birth, and favorite color? How could that possibly be useful info? After all, anyone can find your birth month and day, but not the year, easily enough anyway, unless you're a total paranoid and put the wrong birthday on all your social network sites, and never contradict that date. And year is easy to find, if someone reads you saying how old you are. If that info alone could be used for ID theft, it would be illegal for social networks to ask for that info.

And favorite color? I've never seen any security question that asked that before, ever.

So yeah, in general I don't do these things either, but there's no fucking way this one could be used that way, it doesn't ask anything you can't already find out with a little googling, aside from favorite color, and that information is useless for ID theft.
