We’ve seen it play out before, and now it’s happened again.
Facebook is playing defence against Google+ and blocking a service that scrapes your profile for data to make the switch to Google+ easier.
This time it’s a tool by a company called Open-Xchange aimed to rebuild your contacts from Facebook inside of Google+ by using nothing more than your contacts’ names. Then it matched these names against your personal email records.
If Facebook won’t even let software access names, then there’s trouble brewing.
