Facebook is now allowing third party application developers to access users’home addresses and their mobile phone number.

“Now, shady app developers will find it easier than ever before to gather even more personal information from users, Said Graham Cluey,on the Sophos blog

“You can imagine, for instance, that bad guys could set up a rogue app that collects mobile phone numbers and then uses that information for the purposes of SMS spamming or sells on the data to cold-calling companies.”
