Sharing your posts on Facebook just got a billion times better, with integration into Facebook’s Timeline, News Feed, and Ticker.
New options include:
- Toggle “Send to Facebook” when posting.
- Share Replies on your Facebook Timeline.
- Share Likes on your Facebook Timeline.
(They even get lumped together so they’re not overwhelming!)
You can find the new options in your blog settings. If your blog is already connected to Facebook, you’ll be automatically prompted to upgrade.
Rumors claiming that your phone contacts are visible to everyone on Facebook are false. Our Contacts list, formerly called Phonebook, has existed for a long time. The phone numbers listed there were either added directly to Facebook and shared with you by your friends, or you have previously synced your phone contacts with Facebook. Just like on your phone, only you can see these numbers.

Is Facebook Sharing Your Phone Number
Like many other services, FB asks you for your mobile number so that they can send you a text response should you lose your login.
However, if you give your number to them, Facebook exposes that information to all your friends. ie, Go to Account in the upper right, select Edit Friends, go left on that screen and click on Contacts. All phone numbers are published, which is the image I’ve posted here.
To prevent this, go into privacy settings, select customize, scroll all the way to the bottom and select “only me” next to your contact information… or remove your number entirely.
