Facebook’s New Privacy Policy Puts Users at Great Risk

In January, Facebook made a disturbing message about the plans to allow third party access to home addresses and telephone numbers of the users request. Despite Facebook’s insistence that it protect its users, I believe that this policy, users at risk. are armed with nothing but a Facebook user phone number and address of anyone with an Internet connection and a few dollars, the privacy, they should never have access, including a user’s birth date, e-mail address or estimated revenues. In fact, with this information an identity thief gets almost all the information he had considered for a loan or a credit card in the name of an unsuspecting Facebook users.

And even more frightening, is Facebook the new privacy policy of privacy and the safety of children at the age of 13 Under threaten Facebook’s policy, 13 million users under 18 may use their personal information, such as adult users to share. These younger users are particularly vulnerable to predators on Facebook and the rest of the Internet, and it is mistaken for sharing their home phone numbers and addresses with anyone impossible.

Boom of new technologies in recent years has made it easier to keep in touch with family and friends, but it has also left an unprecedented amount of personal information in the hands of big business and an unknown third party. It is important to protect its users by their plans to allow developers to request access to personal information. It is more important to protect children using the website so that they never accidentally share their phone numbers and home addresses of people who want them could harm.
