“Facebook is temporarily holding off on sharing its users’ addresses and phone numbers with developers and websites after a bit of frustration from its users and security experts.

But the move to grant access to such information to external websites and applications isn’t going away altogether, Facebook said in a post on its Developer Blog on Tuesday morning.

Graham Cluley, a security expert at Sophos who writes for its Naked Security blog, described the decision on Facebook’s part to enable the sharing of such information as a “move that could herald a new level of danger for Facebook users.” ”
