PCMagazine: On Friday, Facebook enabled a new feature that would allow third-party developers to access users' home addresses and telephone numbers. After security and privacy experts issued warnings about the new feature, Facebook has now temporarily suspended it so that the site can make "changes to help ensure you only share this information when you intend to do so."
The company is clear that this is only a temporary reversal though. "We'll be working to launch these updates as soon as possible, and will be temporarily disabling this feature until those changes are ready," said Facebook's Douglas Purdy. "We look forward to re-enabling this improved feature in the next few weeks."
