Have a facebook? Did you know...

that anyone can see your phone number? At the top right of your page, go to account then find friends. On the left will be "phonebook". Click on that and there will be a list of all your friends and their numbers...

  • I don't seem to have the "find friends" option at the top. Where I have it doesn't list address book.

    Plus I never put my # on my account. Clearly another fb error of judgment. Just remove if you wish not to share.

  • Only if you have your privacy setting set that everyone on your friends list or only certain people on your friends list or everyone on facebook or everyone period. I have it set where only people on my friends list can see my number and the only people on my friends list are people I know. The other option is to not put your number up there. Of course I also have facebook set where only people on my friendslist can see anything.

  • Maybe only if you entered a phone number. I checked it and mine is not listed. Out of about 100 friends only 3 phone numbers are on there.

  • Well if don't want people to see certain info about you then do post it on the internet. Just because it says it secure doen't mean it is. I only post pics. post, and info that I don't mind other people seeing. I would never put my number on facebook even if its on private

  • Yes it does show up on your profile only if you enter it in with the rest of your info. So... if you don't want your number to be public then don't enter it..
