App bug overrides user privacy settings
Facebook has leaked access to millions of users’ photographs, profiles and other personal information because of a years-old bug that overrides individual privacy settings, researchers from Symantec said.
According to new research completed by Dan Zarrella, almost 1 in 3 posts to the site come from mobile devices.
The research is based on a random sampling of more than 70,000 Facebook posts, large enough to generate a 99 percent confidence interval with a plus or minus .5 percent margin of error. In other words, this is likely to be fairly accurate.
Most surprising from the analysis was that the vast majority of these updates came through m.facebook.com, not through smartphone devices (although iPhone and Android accounted for close to nine percent total).
