I totally didn’t read any of the recent Facebook Stuff Up articles but I guess it’s totally true.
Looking at my timeline from 2008 and back, I saw what I think were my Private Messages posted on le timeline, oh noes. Anyway, have a look and save yourself from some embarrassment (you can hide it from your timeline) or let it go and let everyone stalk you. Fun times!
[UPDATE] Having a better look around, they’re saying the Facebook population is suffering Internet-amnesia, yet a lot of comments are confirming that their PMs have been leaked.
This could be true, maybe what I thought were PMs weren’t. But maybe they are. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to tell. All this just makes Facebook really scary, because I still felt some of the messages were a little bit too much info and shouldn’t be publicly available on my wall anyway.
Either way, I’d love to see how Facebook will handle its data storing issues. The poor thing is still stuck on MySQL which clearly isn’t designed for a large scale application like Facebook. Good luck.
