    Overnight, a cryptic message was posted to the Facebook fan page in the name of the 26-year old billionaire founder. It called for the site to become a "social business" with investment from its users. The message led to speculation that the the site had been hacked or Mr Zuckerberg's account was compromised. Initially, Facebook would not comment but it has since issued a statement: "A bug enabled status postings by unauthorised people on a handful of pages, The bug has been fixed," the statement read.
    "It was a handful of public Facebook pages and no personal user accounts were affected," it added.

    I think it's more of a cover-up for just how easily you can hack anybody's Facebook account if you've got the right setup...

    Uh, anybody's account is easily hackable if you have a half decent computer.

    No I mean on GBAtemp or any other site. I thought you were referring to just Facebook alone.
