Shouldn't the Cousin Bait link be updated post-GDPR?

WikiTree needs to add a note that Facebook now requires a mobile phone number in addition to the email address and birth date. So yes, an update is a good idea.  Perhaps other people have other suggested changes.

That has nothing to do with WikiTree -- its only about creating accounts on Facebook. Its their standard policy.
agree Dennis. We're not responsible for what Facebook requires.
Yes, Dennis and Natalie, WikiTree is not responsible but you could be kind. You created the link and advised people to use it.  What does it hurt to just add, Facebook now requires a cell phone number.  In my case I don't have a mobile phone but in talking to people about this I learned one would never give her cell phone number.
