The page belonging to the 26-year-old Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder who was named Time’s Man of the Year in 2010, was hacked some time on Tuesday.
The message left by the hacker read: “”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”.
Embarrassingly for Facebook, more than 1800 people “liked” the update before the company took down its chief executive’s page. Facebook has made no public statement about how the hack occurred.
