I have never (and would never) give them access to that! But I gather that quite a few people do.
Aha! Thanks. That explains the FB email I got the other day: supposedly my cousin's wife wanted me to be a "Friend". What creeped me out was that the email added that "You might also know these [6] Facebook Members". I do know all 6 of them, but there's no way any of them could have known my cousin's wife (unless you subscribe to the "Six Degrees of Separation" theory). So I was trying to figure out how Facebook linked me to all of these people. I guess some or all gave FB carte blanche to trawl through their address books and suck up my email address. Nice of them.
