Facebook Stops Phone and Adress Sharing For Developes

Facebook is saying that they need to find a more robust way to make sure users know what data their sharing, and I agree.
I think the way that it's laid out now is horrible. It either scares people away from allowing access thereby stopping them from using the app, or people end up allowing access to information they might not want to because they just gloss over the access rights page.

Here's a link to the full article on CNN
