Friend: What’s your new address? I can come pick you up
Me: Thx, but I don’t want my address to end up on #facebook
Friend: What? I’m not giving it to FB. WTH?!
Me: Hum, you’ll probably add it to my contact on your phone. You gave Messenger and Whatsapp access to your contacts. So yeah if I give you my address there’s a good chance it’ll end up in a FB’s database.

Why is it so hard to protect one’s data these days? Is there a way for me to have ppl over without leaking my address?


@pyre35 My concern isn’t with how to get them the address safely but rather with what they would do with it once they get it. It’s not that I don’t trust them. It’s just that they don’t know any better when it comes to online #privacy. Most people don’t.


@ilyess ah yes, sorry, responded too quickly and short on coffee.
