Slashdot Technology Story | Google Challenges Facebook Over User Address Books

“When you sign in to Facebook, you had the option of importing your email contacts, to ‘friend’ them all on the social network. Importing the other way — easily copying your Facebook contacts to Gmail — required jumping through considerable copy/paste hoops or third-party scripts. Google said enough is enough, and they’re no longer helping sites that don’t allow two-way contact merging. The stated intention is standing their ground to persuade other sites into allowing users to have control of where their data goes — but will this just lead to more sites putting up ‘data walls?'”
