Facebook bug revealed private photos including Mark Zuckerberg's

A bug on Facebook ended up revealing photos that are meant to be private.

What really happened?

Members of a body building forum first spotted the bug, which appeared in a new feature that allowed people to report multiple instances of inappropriate content simultaneously. If you reported a photo for reasons of “nudity or pornography,” you were given the option to “take action by selecting additional photos to include with your report”. You were then shown additional recent photos from the same profile to flag if inappropriate. Unfortunately, photos were shown regardless of their owners’ photo privacy settings.

This blunder resulted in private photos of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's to be released (Source: here).

  1. Never understood why people post their private photos on social networking sites. These sites are perfect spying tools for anyone. its a stupidity to bring private life in public. if u like something u can keep it in albums and cherish for years, instead of telling the whole world how stupid you are....
