Last Friday, after work, Facebook announced they will be providing your home address and telephone number to software developers.

Recommended steps:

  • Remove your home address and/or telephone number from the contact info section of your Facebook profile if you don’t want this information on the internet, forever.
  • Remove all Facebook applications. Remember, they are not written by Facebook, but by any software developer who wants to write applications.  So it is a big decision for you to trust any Facebook application from not stealing and selling your personal information. After all, nothing is free.
