Tell Facebook to stop violating users' privacy

This petition had 18 supporters

With Facebook's failed attempts to overtake email communication, Facebook recently changed all of its 900 million users' default email accounts on the popular social networking site to an account and automatically published it on its users' profile page, which can be can be fixed by going into the settings. But what Facebook has done with it's mobile syncing feature will ruin your entire address book.

At an event last month, Apple announced that they're integrating Facebook in it's upcoming software for both Macs and iOS devices. With iOS 6 coming out within months, the new Facebook integration will let users post statuses directly to the web and update your contacts' information with their Facebook account, which sounds nice. From my personal experience testing iOS 6 and recent reports, what will really happen is that Facebook's syncing feature overrides your entire address books and leaves you with only email accounts for your contacts, without even telling you or asking for permission.

What Facebook is doing is a complete violation of user's privacy by not notifying its users that Facebook will remove its users' personal information and what Facebook does with the information obtained. Because Facebook fails to notify users, users are ultimately left blind because Facebook failed to give users the option of having their personal information shared with other Facebook users and by allowing Facebook to let connected users download their account information.

By signing this petition, you will help other users, like you, that are/will be affected by Facebook's heinous actions of breaching it's trust with users. Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg and all other Facebook employees should be held accountable and we need to stand together by signing this petition to tell Facebook that we do NOT want our personal information violated and shared.

Please share this petition with everyone you know who also use Facebook (I strongly do not recommend you to use the Facebook share button as we do not know if or what Facebook does with that information).
