    ALL THE PHONE NUMBERS IN YOUR PHONE are now on Facebook. No joke -go to the top right of the screen, click on Account, then click on Edit Friends, go left on the screen and click on Contacts. All phone numbers from your phone (FB friends or not) are published. Please repost this on your Status. <-- OMG!!! Such a violation!

    Phonebook Contacts

    Facebook Phonebook displays contacts you have imported from your phone, as well as your Facebook friends.

    If you would like to remove your mobile contacts from Facebook, you need to disable the feature on your mobile phone and visit this page.

    *****
    This is the message that comes up on the right side of the page. The last two words of the message (this page) will take you to another page with some directions.

    Thank you, thank you. I reposted this on Facebook and also done as you stated. I hope it works. It said that it may take time to remove the numbers. This is just crazy. Now I realize why some people dislike Facebook.

    I just followed your directions & see no phone numbers. I did read that you can "disable" the feature.

    The numbers of you facebook friends are the numbers they have posted on their own profile. the others (if they are there) are contacts from your phone.
    And the contacts page is not a public page - I could not pull up your facebook page and see the phone numbers of all your friends.

    probably THIER fb acct..
    That's my guess too! I have very little personal information on FB and I am only friends with a select group of people. None of my FB friends are people I have never met. That just opens you up for all kinds of trouble!!

    this is something that only YOU did by using FB on your phone, but all of your contacts that you can see their #'s also did...this is NOT a violation from FB...just lack of reading the rules on the part of those who use their phones and a SOCIAL network...remember in this day of high tech gangsters, if you don't want the world to know your business...don't use your cell phone like a PA system!....

    Not all of my numbers made it there. A lot of numbers that are not in my phone are there so it must be something that they have put into their profile and it is transferred to your account when you become friends. It can be disabled thru your phone.

    I don't fb on my phone (pics/words too small for these old eyes) but all of my fb friends avatar's show up when they call me. Also, I happened to look at my calendar and all of my fb friends birthdays are noted there. I did upload my Outlook contact list to my phone but I still don't know how I got linked to fb...

    I have never used Facebook on my phone. I guess I'm still old fashioned and use the phone to talk and nothing else.

    Correct! If you take the time to read FB options, you can adjust your privacy level to your comfort level. i use FB to keep up with my out-of state kids. The only people that see my FB are the people i allow to see it. If i don't REALLY know you-you aren't my "friend" .

    Right! I agree! I never listed any phone number on my FB and I don't use my cell for FB! That is just ridiculous!

    actually it doesn't matter. i do not have an iphone or facebook with my phone and i still had all the numbers listed. i'd advise everyone to check it out and deactivate regardless.
