Privacy Problem?

This is a little difficult to describe, but here goes.

This isn't a huge deal for me, but as soon as I saw this, it looked like a privacy problem to me. Maybe I am not understanding my privacy settings correctly.

To cut to the chase:

I have set my photos to "friends only", with my understanding being, that only my friends on Facebook are able to see my photos.

I found an old mention of me in a tweet by a Seattle hyperlocal blog from October of 2010, along with a tinyurl back to a photo gallery of mine:

http://twitter.com/#!/RavennaBlog/sta...

My issue is, you don't have to be signed into Facebook to see my photos in this album. I don't know why that's possible, especially since i've changed my profile setting to "friends only" and I double checked the album itself, and it's "friends only" also.

When I originally posted the pictures, I had the most permissible settings possible.

I am worried that perhaps people changing their privacy settings isn't working for Facebook URL's that are shared.

Meaning that, someone could troll through new users with permissible privacy, share their photo albums out on twitter, and then go back after users change their privacy settings to being more restrictive.

I don't know if this makes any sense or not, but it's perplexing to me.
