In a world of constant status updates, check-ins, and live streams, it's no surprise that society is more conscious of privacy than ever before. Strange, considering people continually breach their own contract of secrecy by posting their lives online. Even so, Facebook was berated for having published users` phone numbers on their profiles for all to see.The Internet giant defended itself by stating that personal phone numbers had been posted on their pages, but only after users themselves had provided them with the information. And to boot, that said information had always been viewable through their Phonebook feature. Users responded by flooding Facebook HQ with angry messages.
