HeathVault: would you notice?

Microsoft HealthVault looked like a good idea to investigate.  Rather strangely, it requested an OpenID or Facebook login to see more details.  Reluctantly, a rarely used Facebook account was used.  So far so good, then the next screen said.

“Microsoft HeathVault UK would like to access your public profile, friend list, email address, birthday and current city.”

No way.  A copy of that would be good for moaning via Quarkside.  No rush, so could wait for a couple of days.  Now can you see the spelling mistake?

Who could have done this?  Is it Microsoft, or Facebook, that isn’t on top of protecting innocent users?
