Facebook IS Sharing Your Home Address And Phone Number With App Developers

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebook

Phonebook facebook

We're not sure how we feel about this, but Facebook is going ahead with their quest to "make the world more open and connected" by giving out users personal contact information such as home addresses and phone numbers to third-party developers and websites.

Facebook first announced this plan in January, but suspended any further action after public outcry from users and Congressmen, but whether you like it or not, the social network may be making you more social than you want to be.

Although the info is only intended to be shared with application developers, experts still fear it may be easier for scammers to take advantage of users who could give out their personal contact information after a few wrong clicks.

Others like Mary Hodder, chairman of the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium, sees this as Facebook's willingness to change the rules of the game. She points out:

"People never thought when they were posting this data [such as their phone numbers] that it would be accessible to anyone but friends. There's a real mismatch of expectations around that. Even if Facebook comes back with new protections, they're still saying, 'Hey, get over it, your data is public.' I feel badly for users that Facebook's approach is 'You give us anything and it's all fair game.'"

We don't think hope there is a reason to get TOO worried because the information sharing is not automatic and a developer has to request permission to access any information from a user. A spokesperson for the website said:

"You need to explicitly choose to share your data before any app or website can access it and no private information is shared without your permission."

The best way to avoid this information being shared however, might be to completely remove it from your profile.

Ali Lohan Gets Her ID Hacked. Yikes!

lindsays sister ali lohan gets id hacked

Words like "terrifying" come to mind. Poor Ali Lohan!

US State Dept Clerk Brooke Reyna is being indicted for using her government position to gain personal information on 100+ celebs and their families, including Lindsay Lohan's sister, Ali.

According to Dina Lohan, her daughter Ali was recently mailed a death threat.

Could there be a connection here?

Hopefully not, but it's certainly a lot of disturbing stuff for Ali to have to deal with all at once.

Here's what Ali's mother, Dina, had to say about the situation:

"It's horrible. I'm petrified. I'm glad the FBI is on it."

We're sorry you have to go through this, Lohans! We're thinking you've got enough drama going on already.
