Facebook – we’re not sharing your phone contacts with the world
This slightly belated message from Facebook wasn’t amusing at all was it 😉
Following many rumours circulating that Facebook was sharing users phone contacts with the world Facebook released this yesterday – Wednesday 10th August
“Rumors claiming that your phone contacts are visible to everyone on Facebook are false. Our Contacts list, formerly called Phonebook, has existed for a long time. The phone numbers listed there were either added by your friends themselves and made visible to you, or you have previously synced your phone contacts with Facebook. Just like on your phone, only you can see these numbers.”
They could have saved a lot of bad feeling if they’d acted faster but at least it’s done and the word is slowly spreading.
