Don’t trust Facebook

Facebook exposed private photos from up to 6.8 million users to apps that weren’t supposed to see them, the company said today. These apps were authorized to see a limited set of users’ photos, but a bug allowed them to see pictures they weren’t granted access to. These included photos from people’s stories as well as photos that people uploaded but never posted (because Facebook saved a copy anyway).

I’m less and less active on Facebook. I stopped cross posting a long time ago. I deleted Facebook from my iPhone (but had to re-install it in order to be able to use a feature of Gurushots which depends on Facebook authentication, something that I hate).
