LinkedIn app sends calendar data

Disappointing, but not all that surprising:

Today’s not a good day to be a LinkedIn user—doubly so if you use LinkedIn’s iPhone app. Researchers have discovered that the app scrapes users’ Calendar items and sends the data back up to its servers, even when those Calendar items were created outside of the LinkedIn app. The scraped data includes participant lists, subject of the entry, time of the meeting, and any attached meeting notes (such as dial-in details and passcodes).

Is anyone still surprised that social networks are not always good citizens when it comes to privacy?
