This final note today, in which Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gets an earful from an unemployed web developer.
The developer found a bug in the company’s software, tried to report it under the bug-reporting program Facebook has — tried a bunch of times, in fact — with nary a peep from the company. The guy hacked Zuckerberg’s personal page and, while apologizing for the hack, left him a message there about the bug.
Bad enough for Facebook. But then they made it worse. Since he actually hacked the site, he’s not gonna get the cash reward that you usually get if you report a bug.
