I suggest you listen to the discussion on yesterdays DTNS about it. They spell out all the details on what actually happened and don't just repeat the inflammatory headlines.

BTW: I'm not saying this is nothing to worry about, just that the headlines are a bit clickbaity.

I'm not a member of Facebook because of an incident years ago when Zuckerberg was having a laugh off camera (not realising that he was being recorded) about how Facebook members are oblivious to the fact their personal information is given to corporations and I thought I dodged a bullet. Now I'm fuming after finding out that even if you visit Facebook, the corporations can still gain information on you. Absolute power corrupts and sociopath Zuckerberg is made for it.
