facebook%20evilFacebook recently announced on its developer blog that it will now be "making a user’s address and mobile phone number accessible as part of the User Graph object." In other words, the site will now let third-party applications (think Farmville or that spammy app your friends keep falling for that promises to show them who is stalking them on Facebook) access your contact information.

"Because this is sensitive information," reads the announcement, "[…]permissions must be explicitly granted to your application by the user via our standard permissions dialogs." Take a look at the example permission dialogs box, however, and tell us if you think this is enough.

That we believe they are planning for long as they make authorize user ID via phone number and login via it.

So what they goanna sell out next? Your photo and information on dating site … No wonder if that happened.

We suggest to stop playing games and using Facebook application to stop spreading your information undesired manners.
