Facebook produces RSS of your updates. The RSS is protected by a unique secret key. You can see the key in link that you copied. Passing this key works as your identity/password. So anyone else cannot see your updates just by changing id passed in the link.
Warning: If you share the key/link to anyone, then he/she can see your all updates from your Facebook account.
