Facebook uploaded email contacts of 1.5m users without consent
Facebook has admitted to “unintentionally” uploading the address books of 1.5 million users without consent, and says it will delete the collected data and notify those affected.

The discovery follows criticism of Facebook by security experts for a feature that asked new users for their email password as part of the sign-up process. As well as exposing users to potential security breaches, those who provided passwords found that, immediately after their email was verified, the site began “importing” contacts without asking for permission.

I’ve never had a Facebook account and I never will. I had a fake MySpace account once though.

*unintentionally*

lol

in the past couple of years, so many of these corporations have had a whoops moment with their users data that IMO it's deliberate & psychological softening of the masses to accept having having no privacy.
