Facebook crash leaves privacy wide open

August 1, 2007

Users logging into Facebook on Tuesday morning were shocked to discover they were being served up other user’s private pages. Strangely users were able to see other members inboxes in some cases so obviously privacy was a huge issue at this time.

It seems Facebook is having a few issues at the moment. They had a period of downtime the other week and now this problem which they put down to a bug of some sort.

They really need to be careful that they keep users data private as too many hiccups of this kind will send users running to other services.
