Facebook is Fucking Up Again

Michael Grothaus reports in Fast Company:

Last year it came to light that Facebook was using the phone numbers people submitted to the company solely so they could protect their accounts with 2FA for targeted advertising. And now, as security researcher and New York Times columnist Zeynep Tufekci pointed out, Facebook is allowing anyone to look up a user by their phone number, the same phone number that was supposed to be for security purposes only.

I deactivated my account for two weeks already and I might end up deleting it.
