Facebook Privacy Issue

Posted on: May 5, 2010

Facebook

Just recently, Facebook announced that they had to close down the Facebook chat whilst they did some repairs due to privacy issues.  An option for people to view their profiles as though they were their friends went out of hand and caused people to be able to see chats and friend requests of their friends.  When people used the preview profile option, they were able to access their friends chats but the bug is now being fixed.  The Facebook chat will be disabled until the problem has been solved, but the workers at Facebook said that it shouldn’t be too long until the problem is solved.  Hopefully something like this will not happen again on Facebook as it is dangerous.  Some people could be talking about private things whilst their friends were basically eves-dropping on their conversations.  It is not a good thing when the privacy of a website like Facebook is failing.  Many people may stop using the website because of it.
