I'm surprised this got so many down votes. Companies can pull any of your information displayed on facebook, including your number, and your friends numbers. They cannot take information from private messages, which is where you should share things like phone numbers.

Well my family learned the hard way. A company took my brothers number off of facebook and sent him advertisements via text message. What comes up on the next bill but this mysterious $30 charge. Verizon helped us trace back how it happened. So there's my story, and that's why you don't display your personal phone number on the Internet.

Citrus, it had downvotes because she's speaking of people willingly posting numbers on someone's status when they ask for it. There's this cool thing called private messaging, guess you guys haven't heard of it? Either way your bro's fault for posting his number on what I assume is his profile for constant public access.

I know I know blah blah sue happy Americans, but your brother could have sent them a certified letter stating intent to sue (some other steps I'm not sure about probably required), for them its cheaper to pay him 600 or so dollars than fucking with court

There's this lovely new thing called changing your privacy settings on Facebook. Also, you have to change who you allow on your profile. The comment got thumbed down because anyone who actually puts their number on a FB status, then you really are a tard.

Okay let me rephrase... I hate it when people willingly give out their numbers. I hate to tell you, but whether your settings are set to private or not, sites can pull your number. Unless, as previously mentioned, you send it through a private message.

I fail to see where OP said she put her number on Facebook. She could have been talking to the people who already have her number to see who actually Wants OP to have his or her number and is willing to text OP.

exactly! when I got my new phone I did exactly this I'm not gonna give my phone number out to random people it's for the people I know in real life, it's a way to contact people when you don't have their number.
