These messages are real. “They ‘trust me’. Dumb fucks”. These are words confirmed by Mark Zuckerberg himself. Read them again.
After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, where the investigation revealed that 50 million people were robbed of their private information, Facebook is back in the news.
It took them 3.5 weeks to disclose a bug that exposed millions of users’ private data to app developers.
It then took us some time to build a meaningful way to notify people, and get translations done.
Compared to any Facebook engineer, I’m probably mediocre at best, but even I could put a page together explaining what happened in less time.
Facebook automatically translates your timeline into 50 different languages. You really think is that hard to translate “We’re really sorry we fucked up. The situation is under control. We found and fixed whatever was wrong.”?
There is still life after Facebook.
