Submission + - Facebook opens up home addresses and phone numbers (sophos.com) 2

An anonymous reader writes: Do you really want third-party app developers on Facebook to be able to access your mobile phone number and home address?

Facebook has announced that developers of Facebook apps can now gather the personal contact information from their users. Security firm Sophos describes it as "a move that could herald a new level of danger for Facebook users" and advises users to remove their home address and phone numbers from the network immediately.

  • Facebook, and probably any company with this much digital infrastructure, won't delete anything that you've given them, even if you choose to "delete" it. It'll just mark it as deleted and not show it to you again, but it's still all there.

  • "I bet you a beer that if we ask for home addresses AND phone numbers, then the idiots still wouldn't leave!"
    "You're on!"
