However - Today I read in the Telegraph, that parents are worried that children can get porn on their mobile phones.... While of course I do want our children to be able to use the internet and be safe - I feel this is slightly exaggerated or maybe parents just aren't informed and unaware. When they say mobile phone of course, they actually mean Smartphone - a smartphone is a mobile phone that is built on a mobile operating systems allowing internet connectivity.

When you are going to allow a Facebook application now you might see this ...... as Facebook has now allowed developers access to your private information. As announced on the developers blog page on Saturday here.   See updated information at the end. As you see can see its not only allowing the application access to your basic information but also your current address and mobile phone number.Of course you can just click don't allow on the permissions page (if you notice it)  or you can make sure that this personal information isn't on Facebook in first place, which would be my advice. To make sure you have not got this information to share with third party applications.Go to Profile (Top Right) Edit Profile (Top Right) Contact Information (Left menu) If you have your private information here then, delete it and click save changes at the bottom. Facebook obviously isn't interested in our privacy, we know that by now, so its up to us to be vigilant and keep an eye out for these things. Update, Facebook has now posted a blog Improvements to Permissions for Address and Mobile NumberThey say here not that they are cancelling this (as some [...]
