The privacy of Facebook users has also been an issue, and the safety of user accounts has been compromised several times. Facebook has settled a lawsuit regarding claims over source code and intellectual property. News is just surfacing about how in May 2011 emails were sent to journalists and bloggers making critical allegations about Google's privacy policies; however it was later discovered that the anti-Google campaign, conducted by PR giant Burson-Marsteller, was paid for by Facebook in what CNN referred to as "a new level skullduggery" and which Daily Beast called a "clumsy smear".
Nothing this company does fails to amaze me!
Hackers were typically a word that could have been used to describe software geeks who broke systems to spell out the inefficiencies of the system. They could use the knowledge learned to improve the same system.
Crackers however are developers who break a system for their own vile, ugly, illegal gains. Over the last 7 years FB has turned into a crackers paradise. The developers in FB have turned into individuals that in any other industry would not just be put behind bars, but would have been villified in all areas of society.
FB is nothing but deceipt and corruption led by a manipulative board. They are starting to become ugly in more ways than just monetary!
FB better be very careful screwing around with Google. They don't want to start a internet war with them. Fb will never be like Google. Some of these folks have let last weeks little pump get to their heads. I am still trying to figure out how FB makes their money when anyone can sign up for free. The ads don't work, the search is NOT going to work if they think they can manipulate with PR after PR to convince people that it will. It's shocking that anyone is stupid enough to pay these levels for this stock.
