Sharing Contacts with Facebook

If you have been plagued by someone constantly emailing you, asking to join them on Facebook, chances are, that person innocently ticked a box, asking them if they would like to 'share their contacts'.

Facebook then sucks up all the contacts, and for all of those who aren't yet your friends, bombards them with invitations. Your clients, acquaintances, friends and even your dentist are likely to get a bit miffed.

The difficulty is that this function is incredibly well hidden, so disabling it becomes one of those circular "Argh!" chores. However, I have a fix for you. Go to https://www.facebook.com/contact_importer/remove_uploads.php and click the remove button.

And go out of your way to NOT share your contacts on any other social media platforms.
