More Facebook Privacy Concerns

Facebook has now decided to give it's third party developers access to your number and address information, along with the usual list of permissions that include geolocation, friends list, name and such.

What does this mean to you? Well I would say its time (if you haven't already) to delete your phone number and address from your Facebook account. Who knows what kind of crazy spam you could be getting if you accidentally allow some third party app to access your info.

Facebook is swearing that the apps will have to be approved by them and that they will have to adhere to Facebook's strict no-spamming policy, however there have already been abuses by shady app developers in the past and there is no reason not to expect that to continue.

So go NOW! and delete your phone number and address info from Facebook before you get identity jacked.
