In the case of Facebook, we have become used to see the name of the social network mixed with some problem of privacy. Zuckerberg seems to want to take seriously the philosophy of learning missing. Proof of this happened on Friday last when the network engineers decided it would be a good idea to allow application developers from accessing more detailed information of network members.
Fortunately it was not a full and uncontrolled access. Application developers could ask through their own Facebook API to access the address and phone number they have registered on the site. The reason was noble: according to the network developers, with the address sharing site members could easily send delivery data to for example shopping site.
However, as a considerable portion of users do not read data for which the application is requesting permission to access, it is safe to assume that many of them would access this data unintentionally. And as not all application developers are honest, some of them could use the data to identity theft or similar crimes.
To the delight of the members concerned about their privacy, Facebook temporarily disabled this feature nothing controversial today and blocked access to these specific data by the developers. It is not known when it will be turned back, but I’ll bet that some members would prefer “never” answer to this question.
