I've just looked at the data files I requested from Facebook and they had every single phone number in my contacts.

But how much data it sucks in, and what it does with it, is a question of major public importance - one that touches on the health of democracy itself, privacy advocates say.
"I promise to do better for you", said Zuckerberg, who has come under harsh criticism for the scandal which sent the company's value plunging by nearly $50 billion last week.
