Lawmakers Express Concern Over Facebook Privacy Issues [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
Reps. Joe Barton (R-Texas) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.), major congressional players on privacy issues, wrote to Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday expressing concerns about the social networking site's plans to share user addresses and phone numbers with developers and websites.

“Facebook needs to protect the personal information of its users to ensure that Facebook doesn’t become Phonebook," said Markey, who co-chairs the Congressional Privacy Caucus along with Barton and two senators. "This is sensitive data and needs to be protected.”
