Google "Sebastian Holst makes yoga mobile apps with his wife, a yoga instructor. The Mobile Yogi is sold in all the major mobile app stores. But when someone buys his app in the Google Play store, Holst automatically gets something he says he didn't ask for: the buyer's full name, location and email address. He says consumers are not aware that Google Inc. is sharing their personal information with third parties. No other app store transmits users' personal information to third-party developers when they buy apps, he said." Oh Google.

The difference is that I am AWARE that I am sharing all those details with Facebook.

I was not AWARE Google shared this with developers when I buy at Google Play.

Are you aware that eBay shares that information with the sellers?

That makes sense: physical shipping!
Google Play doesn't ship parcels.
