When my family and I drove up to a university campus 4 hours from home, I reached for my mobile phone to send a friend–a professor at the university–a message via Facebook, the only virtual space my friend and I had connected. As I was looking through her Facebook profile via my phone, I noticed her phone number. “What the heck, might as well try it and see if I can reach her” I muttered to myself and tried calling it.
Unless this attack is successful, you may need to take advantage of instructions how to remove….
Finally, you’ll get an email like this one:
As you requested, your imported contacts have been removed. Please note: if some of your friends choose to share their email or phone numbers with friends on Facebook, you’ll still see their contact information in your phonebook.
Thanks,The Facebook Team
Hmm…to stop Facebook from synching your phone (iphone/Android) again, make sure to follow the instructions outlined in this blog post. Thanks to Joshua Smith for the tip! For fun, I’ve quoted them here:
- Android Phone – Go the main menu, and select Settings. Under Other Settings, select Sync Contacts. Select Remove Facebook data.
- Apple iPhone – Start the Facebook app in your iPhone then select Friends. Select the sync button at the top right and then tap sync contacts. Turn off syncing.
Yet, even after taking all these steps…my contacts still reflect phone numbers.
|I’d recommend editing these settings….|
