    Heard the story about the data yesterday; it doesn't affect me at all. [​IMG]

    Stories about this happening a lot amuses me though; can't Failbook just get deleted from the internet and we can all leave this behind us?

    What are the consequences that they face? Hopefully something to shut down Zynga. [​IMG]

    I thought the point of Facebook was to have your personal information on it. Why the hell would you want to play Farmville?

    Awesome. Now those kiddies can finally fuck off and start using Netlog/shit like that again, and leave Facebook to the (slightly) more mature.

    So is Zynga not on Facebook anymore? My mom'll be sad. She plays Cafe World, which is by the same people.

    LOL yeah. But if Failbook's/Facebook's deleted, then we won't have anything funny to look at on Failbook.

    Haha, that's just my nickname for it. [​IMG]

    It might even be better if just none of my friends had it so that everyone that fails would be anonymous to me. [​IMG]

    When I first heard this though, I had wondered if the administrators knew about this all too well. [​IMG]

    This isn't the first time Facebook has had privacy issues, so it's not really surprising. People need to learn that if you don't want something public, you shouldn't put it on the internet.
