Continuing the saga of all that is Facebook. All kidding aside, I read this stuff and think “surely this can’t keep happening”, “surely it won't get any worse”. Hard to believe I’m still this naive.
In this week’s issue - it was revealed that Facebook stored user’s passwords in plain text for many years. Spoiler alert, this isn’t a good thing. Essentially this means that Facebook employees could know and use your own login credentials to login to your account.
In typical Facebook fashion they have admitted the issue but are stating it’s a limited set of users. This will inevitably be revised to some higher number on page 6 of a small town newspaper later this year when nobody is looking.
