Public phone numbers,need to find a phone number for free,lookup for phone numbers - For Begninners

A hacker has exploited Facebook’s Graph Search to collect a database of thousands of phone numbers and Facebook users. Brandon Copley, a mobile developer in Dallas, Texas, searched and downloaded 2.5 million entries of phone numbers from the social network. Copley confirms that these users have their contact information set to public, but argues that this is still a security issue.
Facebook admitted to a major security flaw regarding the Download Your Information tool on Friday afternoon that displayed the email and phone numbers of 6 million users; while similar in nature, Facebook says that flaw is unrelated to Copley’s hack, which they say is not a security flaw.
Copley says he used his access tokens from his developer account and the Facebook Search API to perform thousands of searches per day for phone numbers; when he began hitting up against the rate limit of his developer account, he found a way to use the API token of an app that isn’t rate-limited and performed millions of searches. The obvious difference between these two instances is that Auernheimer revealed that information that was supposed to be private but was publicly accessible; the information that Copley scraped is all set to public. Copley also says he has also been looking at other ways to search Facebook for phone numbers and now believes he has found an even faster way to connect Facebook users and phone numbers than through the search API.
Message warns recipients that cell phone numbers are set to be released to telemarketing companies this month and that consumers will be charged for incoming calls from these companies.
The claim that cell phone numbers are about to be released to the public is a long running hoax with no factual basis whatsoever.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) today reiterated that despite the claims made in e-mails circulating on the Internet, consumers should not be concerned that their cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers in the near future, and that it is not necessary to register cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call (DNC) Registry to be protected from most telemarketing calls to cell phones. For the following numbers, precede with 04 state access code if calling from another state outside Penang, Kedah and Perlis, and precede that with 60 (dropping the 0 of the state access code) if calling from outside Malaysia.

Put it this way…I know people who have most privacy settings cranked up, yet they create an open group advertising their new number, requesting their mates numbers.
By uploading a photo to Facebook, they automatically assume the right to use and even profit from your photos.
So I suppose uploading your telephone number to Facebook isn’t that bad seeing as they own most of you and your details anyway.
Both parties agree that all the information was left public by users (even if the users themselves may still not realize it). He says many of these entries are empty, as they either aren’t active numbers or aren’t connected to a Facebook user with public settings; however, he notes that thousands of entries do match a phone number with the name of a Facebook user. It creates interfaces that often encourage users to share more data publicly, which lets them do things like search for each other using only a phone number. He appears to be determined to press Facebook on this privacy issue and show the world how widely accessible users’ public contact information is. The message urges people to register on the Do Not Call list to have their cell phone numbers blocked from such calls. However, as noted above, US consumers can add the cellphone numbers to the National Do Not Call Registry if they wish either via the Registry's website or by calling 888-382-1222 from the phone they wish to register. But of course, these people are highly likely not exposed to the dangers of having sooo many people knowing their phone numbers.
I understand why people do it, because they want numbers, but for goodness’ sake make the group private!

But it also wants to retain a sense of privacy — and control over users — so it fights anyone else who tries to access the data it helps make public. However, the claim that cell phone numbers are due to be released to telemarketing companies is untrue. The claim in the message that numbers added to the Registry will expire in five years is incorrect. I have just got a new phone so want my friends numbers (as my old one is broken so cant import my address book). However, it should be noted that the National Do Not Call Registry itself is a real US Government entity and US consumers can indeed register their cell phone numbers if they wish. Registered numbers do not expire and will only be removed when they are disconnected and reassigned, or when the consumer chooses to remove a number from the registry.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222 .
