Not only can they now see all your contacts, but they will know who your close personal friends are, have access to your facebook inbox and messages too.

I would NEVER put my life into a smartphone, why not just give out your credit card information to the public?
You can have it go to your lock screen before going to Facebook home.
How is it that different from having the Facebook app on your phone?
