The hits keep coming for Facebook: Web giant made 14m people's private posts public • The Register

'"We recently found a bug that automatically suggested posting publicly when some people were creating their Facebook posts. ', "Facebook is having to douse yet another privacy blaze – as the social network admitted to inadvertently setting some of its addicts' private posts to public, meaning anyone could read them."

'Unfortunately, the feature caused all new posts, not just the featured items, to be made "public."'

'The cockup is thought to have stemmed from new features Facebook was testing to allow users to share "featured" items on their profile that are set to "public" viewability. '

'"We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake," CEO Mark Zuckerberg would tell US Congress. '

This has been an automated message.

That's how they're going to monetize Facebook, threaten to make everybody's stuff public, and those with stuff to hide are going to be fucked unless they pay the tard tax.

Well, that was a failure. They meant to make everyone's posts public, but this was a start, I guess.
