On the same day Facebook bought ads in U.S. and British newspapers to apologize for the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the social media site faced new questions about collecting phone numbers and text messages from Android devices.Facebook said Sunday the information is uploaded to secure servers and comes only from Android users who opt in to allow it.A spokeswoman told the Associated Press that Facebook uses the information to rank contacts in Messenger so they are easier to find and to suggest people to call.Users get the option to allow data collection when they sign up for Messenger or Facebook Lite, the Facebook posting said.
