Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The question is here - Why does Stack Exchange want to access my Facebook friends list?

There is a similar question, but my question falls in none of the categories as explained in the top answer.

What's happening here? Anyone?

The question was genuine, and people had the similar doubt as me - they were getting an answer from there. So, I have no clue why the mod decided to delete it.

Moderators are people, and different people have varying opinions on what should stay and what should be deleted. I for one see no reason for that to be deleted. It could be useful to other people who are wondering why SE is requesting permission to their friend's list. – Mysticial Aug 23 '13 at 2:54
The closing comment was This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a Facebook bug that is not part of the Stack Exchange system. still, that's arguably not a reason for deleting it – Pëkka Aug 23 '13 at 3:13
Deleted?? Ahem!!! – Krishnabhadra Aug 23 '13 at 3:39
I don't even agree with the closure! – Jan Dvorak Aug 23 '13 at 3:49
