Well at least your mum has friends (judging by the likes) Sorry OP...
I hate people who post that they need people's numbers. You really shouldn't give your number out online, you know there's a site that is dedicated to displaying every phone number ever posted on facebook.
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.
