The hacker called for Facebook to become a truly “social business.”

The hacker posted a status update, writing, “Let the hacking begin: If Facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn’t Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a ‘social business’ the way Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011″.

Though the hack was noticed and the status was deleted within minutes, it received over 500 comments with more than 1,800 people “liking” the update.

Many are speculating about the incident, but Facebook released no statement about how the hack occurred.

Some think Zuckerberg’s password may have gotten into the wrong hands, while others speculate it’s some sort of inside job.

Whatever the case may be, Facebook users are doubting the security of Facebook. If the CEO of Facebook could get hacked, what makes the rest of us safe? Thoughts?

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
