Facebook's got your number! (of FRIENDS)

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Facebook's got your number! (of FRIENDS)

Not sure if this is "newsworthy" or more appropriate for "tech" but it is definitely interesting! I've wondered how Facebook knows so much about me!

Speaking of Facebook friends, I've got over 300 friend requests in the last couple months that I just haven't gotten around to accepting or denying. Image

I feel so popular, LoL. Image

Interesting article.

I have no friends because I am not on FB :cry:

But seriously, you guys let Fb look at all your email and phone contacts ? What if they don't feel good with that ? And don't you have "private" friends, or friends that mustn't know that you're friends with their enemies/exes?
In a nutshell, whenever you sign up for a Facebook account, Facebook asks permission to look at your e-mail contacts if you’re on a computer, or your phone contacts if you’re on a smartphone. When you grant the site permission, it searches your contacts for users already on the network, and it searches other users’ uploaded contacts for you.
