Facebook bug revealed Mark Zuckerberg’s Private Photos


Bookmark and Share

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg was caught up in the social networking site’s latest privacy glitch, as photos that would normally be kept private for exposed for public view.

The photos don’t reveal anything overtly scandalous, just images that Zuckerberg chose to remain private, for his own personal reasons. Fourteen images were shared with a photo site and show Zuckerberg holding what appears to be a dead chicken, Zuckerberg at home with friends, and handing out candy at Halloween.

"The bug allowed anyone to view a limited number of another user’s most recently uploaded photos irrespective of the privacy settings for these photos," Facebook said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon. "This was the result of one of our recent code pushes and was live for a limited period of time. Upon discovering the bug, we immediately disabled the system, and will only return functionality once we can confirm the bug has been fixed."

The glitch comes one week after the Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement with Facebook that required the social network to be more transparent about its privacy policies.

Zuckerberg’s private images were apparently shared in an effort to demonstrate the effect could have on Facebook users, many of whom have complained about Facebook’s privacy policies. Zuckerberg, an advocate for sharing content across his network and others, has also made his some of his Google+ content private - although Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have taken the same tack.

For his part, Zuckerberg has apologized numerous times for Facebook’s privacy transgressions and redesigns, even going so far as to pre-apologize for the company’s new Timeline, which has yet to be rolled out across the network’s entire user base.
