Mark Zuckerberg - Mark Zuckerberg Has Facebook Page Hacked

MARK ZUCKERBERG, the founder of website Facebook and the world's youngest billionaire, had his own page on the social networking site hacked yesterday (25th January 2011), according to the Washington Post. The hacker posted a message on the 26-year-old's 'wall' that called for the website to become a 'social business' and linked to a Wikipedia page that explained the term.
A 'social business', according to the page, is a business with "positive social objectives" where investors cannot take "profits out of the enterprise as dividends". The full 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?" Yunus, a Bangladeshi economist, introduced the term 'social business' in his 2008 book 'Creating a World without Poverty'. The message was quickly taken down, but not before 438 people had commented on it and 1,803 had 'liked it'.
Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at security protection site Sophos noted, "It's not clear if he was careless with his password, was phished, or sat down in a Starbucks and got sidejacked while using an unencrypted wireless network. However it happened, it's left egg on his face just when Facebook wants to reassure users that it takes security and privacy seriously".
