Facebook has announced that developers of Facebook apps can now gather the personal contact information from their users. Security firm Sophos describes it as "a move that could herald a new level of danger for Facebook users" and advises users to remove their home address and phone numbers from the network immediately."

Facebook doesn't delete anything (1)
