Third Party Apps at Facebook get access to user’s Mobile No. and Address

Of late Facebook has faced some slack because of the privacy concerns that users had raised. The issues have been well documented over the last few weeks. A claim being that the application is sending out private and personal information to third party websites. The kind of information included friend’s lists, email IDs and other private details. It was already a matter of concern for users that such information is been shared by advertisers and third party app developers and now Facebook is expanding such share. Yes, now your mobile number and home address can be accessed by third party app maker that ask for.

The Facebook Developer’s blog says

We are now making a user’s address and mobile phone number accessible as part of the User Graph object. Because this is sensitive information, we have created the new user_address and user_mobile_phone permissions. These permissions must be explicitly granted to your application by the user via our standard permissions dialogs.

These permissions must be explicitly granted to your application by the user via our standard permissions dialogs,” it explained

Facebook seems to be ignorant to the rising Facebook scams as a result it is concentrating less on privacy issues. Users usually might not read the permission notification before allowing the app and why an app maker does would need such information goes unanswered by Facebook. We already know the importance of phone number and home address and sharing such data can surely be proved harmful for users. So be careful and play around Facebook!

  4. I don’t truly treatment how or once i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box 1 day. A nice, tangible surprise. I’m for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up to the men and women who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious nature of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival from the letter and the words of your author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like best about The Rumpus is that I never understand what I’ll read that day. Or if there isn’t one which day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t discover anything to say or there was as well much planning on.
