Facebook Temporarily Suspends Contact Information Sharing With Developers
Douglas Purdy, director of developer relations, wrote that the company would be suspending the service, and that Facebook "could make people more clearly aware of when they are granting access to this data." Purdy went on to say that the company will be updating the feature and re-enabling it soon. We just hope the next version comes with additional safeguards beyond a warning to users. If there's one thing that the countless march of Facebook scams and malware has shown us, it's that some Facebook users will agree to anything.
