A post on the Facebook developer blog has revealed that user will soon be able to grant access to their personal contact info. The post indicates Facebook application will soon be able to request access to current address and mobile phone number. The user must explicitly grant access to the user_address and user_mobile_phone fields. Should we brace for rogue applications that will try to trick users into divulging their contact info? Offering up a current address and phone number might be appropriate for a company, but it’s probably not appropriate for an individual at this time.
