Re-defining privacy!

Someone is trying to break into my accounts (Gmail & Facebook), I thought of this: If he kindly asked me, I'd pass it to him/her without any doubt!
I have only three conditions: 1- No delete , 2- For a limited time we agree upon, & 3- Tell me what you've learned about me from what I have... this is an open invitation BTW :)
... Just to put you on context, I have more than 7.5 GB of Emails in my Gmail account, and on Facebook, I have 5320 friends , 2554 followers more than 230 photo albums on Facebook (some of them contain over 200 pictures)...

I imagined this scenario :

Not this one:

Is it a violation of my friends privacy? What are the limits here?
Any many questions popped up in my mind...Your input is highly appreciated.

        "What else "?....actually there are lot.....say privacy differs with gender, age, physical condition etc etc ...say the question which can't be asked by a general person to a physically challenged person due to privacy reason ....is a must question for a healthcare professional.......

        Actually privacy concept needs lot of awareness about lot factors and applying common sense ...
