Phone books privacy

Let me remind you that anyone can freely find your address and phone number in phone books, and it has been possible for decades, at least in France.

So please, stop complaining about Facebook breaking into your privacy when it allowed apps to ask you to give them your phone number and address. If you want to fix your privacy leaks, start from the basics and remove yourself from phone books. Personally, I only blame Facebook for not making this sharing disclaimer clear enough.
