Facebook still wants to give out your info

1 03 2011

Remember last month, when Facebook announced it was granting access to users’ mobile phone numbers and home addresses to third-party developers (upon users granting permission)? Soon after, the companysuspended the feature as privacy concerns quickly escalated.  Well they haven’t given up, more info after the jump.

Facebook said it had received useful feedback that they could make people more clearly aware of when they are granting access to contact data. The company said it was temporarily disabling the feature.

Now, in a letter to Congress (pdf), Facebook (via CNET’s Declan McCullagh), Facebook is talking about bringing the feature back. Read the CNET article for full details.
