    Nope. Not mine. When you sign up or edit your contact information on Facebook, there's a place to put in your phone number (mobile or other). I never understood why people would do this, but I did not. I'm guessing that you guys did.

    Pretty sure it's been that way for a while and it's not just the Droid client that updates that number. I'm fairly confident that the WinMo, BB, and iPhone apps do the same update, if you have it set to, that is.

    Your crazy enough to put it on there, it is on a public site, so not sure why anyone would be upset about it. If you do not want ANYTHING public, do not post it.
    People want privacy, but will post their personal information and then complain about it. Then there are the people who will post about their grandfather's father ingrown toenail surgery and what illness they had for the past 3 days. :icon_eek:

    They probably put it there when they signed up, or when they edited their info.

    Yep... it's been that way for years, this is nothing new.

    If you go into the Info tab on your friends' FB accounts, often times, you will find their phone number listed there!

    I've never understood why people would put their number on Facebook?

    My number is on my fb, it doesn't bother me. My page is private and only my friends can view it. If I was one of those people that accepted anyones friend request I wouldn't have it up there though.

    Heck, I'm loath to put anything up online, so I know for sure I have never put my phone number on FB.

    Heck, I don't even give my cell number out to some people I know, just because I don't want them calling me. :) They know my home number, and that's good enough. If you give someone your cell, it's just a license (in their mind) to call and bother you 24/7.

    Yeah, as several people have pointed out, this is nothing new. The only people on my Facebook friends list are friends and acquaintances I have IRL, so I don't mind them having my numbner.
    And just i case I do, I use my Google Voice number :)

    qft.

    Honestly... if you have people on your FB who you dont want to call you, then why are they even on your FB? People need to get over the "More is better" theory and just accept what they have in life. Dont be mad if only 30 people you know are on your friends list, no one cares how many friends you have, its never been a contest.
