Facebook gives away your phone number and address

18 01 2011
  • Facebook is now allowing App developers access to users personal details including address and phone number, “Please note that these permissions only provide access to a user’s address and mobile phone number, not their friend’s addresses or mobile phone numbers,” says Facebook employee  Jeff Bowen. 
    So, now any site or app that uses Facebook integration (there are a few of them out there) can get direct access to your phone number and home address if you provide that info to Facebook and consent to the terms of the application, i.e. read the fine print.
  • In other news SEOmoz has yet another excellent guide, this time on backlink analysis. “Using link data, although it can never be perfectly accurate, allows you to take a more scientific approach to your SEO strategies. How can we leverage link data for actionable insights?”
