    I thought that there used to be a permission setting to allow, or not, Facebook to read my contacts, but I don't see it under Privacy anymore. I noticed today that in the section where Facebook recommends people that you may know all of a sudden is showing tons of contacts that I have never been friends on Facebook with, nor have I ever searched for them. Every single top result is someone from my contacts even though when I first signed up for Facebook and installed it on my iPhone and iPad I specifically said no to "Allow" it access to my contacts list. Now I can't even find a setting to say no anymore. These are people that are not friends, they are mostly business contacts, with my actual friends so there is no other way for Facebook to know that I even know these people. Was there a change to the app that I am unaware of? I feel that this is a massive invasion to my privacy from Facebook.
