Submission + - Facebook France showing old private messages on some users' Timeline (metrofrance.com)

obarthelemy writes: Since midday, it seems some French Facebook users are seeing old private posts/messages pop up on their public Timeline. This has major /popcorn potential, if you've ever used FB's private messages to exchange secrets, talk behind someone's back, have an affair... or even talk business.

Facebook denies this being a security issue, so it's probably a bug. It's being investigated, in the mean time users are advised to disable the Timeline feature.

Cue ruminations about whether entrusting important communications and data to a third party that doesn't offer any king of guarantee, except the guarantee that it is selling them on, is wise.

Somebody ought to cross ball point pens with coat hangers so that the pens will multiply instead of disappear.
