Does Facebook access just your Facebook address book
or all the address books on your computer?
The news articles are vague.
They don't state "which" address book(s).
I'm trying to answer some questions our
folks have about security.
I don't want to under or over state the situation.

Facebook can't access your Mac Address Book unless you upload the contents to Facebook.

No, no, no. Facebook cannot access *anything* on your Mac unless you allow it to.

99% of "news" articles don't actually know what they're talking about. Just keep that in mind. ;)
