How are we feeling about Facebook’s privacy today? If you’re founder Mark Zuckerberg, not so good since his account on the social networking behemoth was hacked Tuesday.
An anonymous hacker shared this message, which was liked by 1,800 users before being removed:
“Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn’t Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way,” the message read. “Why not transform Facebook into a ‘social business’ the way Nobel Price [sic] winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011.”
Yanus is a Bangladeshi economist and author of “Building Social Business: The New Kind of Capitalism that Serves Humanity’s Most Pressing Needs.”
According to CNN, Zuckerberg’s was not the only high-profile account hacked this week. French president Nicolas Sarkozy was the victim of a hacker who posted a message stated he would not seek re-election.
Facebook hasn’t made any public statements about either hack, but did post an item on the official company blog Wednesday titled “A Continued Commitment to Security.”
