Facebook Privacy: Creepy data-sharing feature ‘temporarily disabled’
Facebook has now ‘temporarily’ disabled the home address and phone number sharing controversially introduced a few days ago.
After the security geeks and our lot had voiced concern at the consequences of such move Facebook backed down without giving any explanation. No further comment was made on what would happen next.
The feature is meant to allow developers to access personal details such as phone number and home address records for users when accessing certain apps.
In as far as privacy is concerned, as the kids say, it is an epic fail!
