    Never trust any large company.

    I'm at a loss for how that happens. On android if you dont explicitly request the permission to use the contact list in the manifest then you simply can't do it, the phone won't let you.

    Why people continue to trust companies like this amazes me - your demographic/contacts information is all they care about.

    Here kiddies, fill out this form and you can ride our cute ride (and we'll bundle and sell this information for millions!)

    I've never used a twit-app so i don't know what it asks, but i'm sure some versions had a default "send everything" mode

    It's the price of the service. The same people who get all in arms about facebook mining their data usually seem to be the same crowd that would be horrified if facebook charged $10/month

    It's becoming creepy. If a stupid Facebook "friend" install some weird facebook app, it steals the contacts, and then you get spammed. An online dating service keep spamming me about how the girls in my Facebook contact wants to meet me and are sending me "personal" messages.

    It's insidious, is what it is. The average Joe won't think of the marketing behind the service, and they don't tell you up front in latge bold letters that they're about to use your info for themselves.

    I guess I really don't find it that way at all. I'm more than happy to receive free services in exchange for receiving some advertising.

    I remember the days when email accounts cost money, when social networks charged you to get in, when google didn't pay for all my long distance calling... I don't really miss it

    You've got a point as long as you realize that those services AREN'T free (which you obviously do lol) and that the providers of those services are benefiting substantially more from the use of your data than just the cost of the services you're using.

    I don't think that most people do though and I think some percentage will eventually find out the hard way. Present company excluded ofc...

    But most people know that facebook is worth over 9000 billion dollars, and that they don't pay for it - it shouldn't take any more than some high school level critical thinking to put those together.

    You're absolutely right. It shouldn't. LOL

    I wonder about that. Didn't we hear the same thing about AOL?
