Zuckerberg's Facebook page hacked
Edited on Thu Jan-27-11 12:39 AM by Turborama

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook fan page seems to have been hacked, with the hacker posting a message calling on the company to transform into a "social business".

The message, seemingly posted on Facebook from Mark Zuckerberg's account, was quickly removed (together with the fan page), but not quickly enough to go by unnoticed, receiving more than 1800 likes and hundreds of comments in the process.

The message read: "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? Why not transform Facebook into a 'social business' the way Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup20113

Facebook made no statement about the incident, but if Zuckerberg's fan page was indeed hacked, it's a big deal. If the Facebook CEO (more accurately, the PR team who's handling the page for him) can't keep his Facebook account safe from intruders, who can?

2. "why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook"
Surely Anonymous must know that Zuckerberg can't get into Bill Gates' net worth territory without selling his customer's information to big corporations.

If Facebook was actually owned by its users they would never allow that to happen.

3. No company can sell to ordinary people without going public.
Private companies do Reg D Section 506 offerings which require the investments to come from sophisticated high net worth entities who can afford to risk the investment.

Even if Facebook wanted to sell to its users (who would probably pay a higher per share price than wholesale) they cannot.

I had quit Facebook (not for me) and twice my account was activated. Which to me is a problem with Fascebook.....you never really can quit and go away. I'm always somewhere just waiting to be activated again.
