    That's hilarious to me, I don't care what I'm considered for finding it funny. As much as I detest the man, Mark Zuckerberg can't be blamed for this one. I would fall over in shock if this finally woke people up to the dangers of this social crap.

    The story is a little misleading. If it is publicly accessible it is not leaked.

    Not exaclty correct, addresses, dates of birth or phone numbers cannot be seen from a Facebook public profile page. The only items visible are name, picture (if one was added), some Facebook friends (only those with public profiles) and Likes.

    If your profile is not public, you cannot be clicked through to because you will not be listed as a friend on any ones public profile page.
