Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Page Disabled After Hack

By Ricky on January 26th, 2011 

Earlier today, a bizarre message appeared in Facebook Co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook page. The message reads:

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 Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011

The bizarreness of the message led many to believe that the message was posted by someone else and TechCrunch reported about it. The #hackercup2011 hashtag many mean that it was done by some disgruntled participant of Facebook Hacker Cup 2011. Many participants were not pleased with the way Facebook handled the event.

After words got out that the page has been hacked, Facebook has disabled the page. Here is a screenshot of the status update taken by TechCrunch. By the time they took the screenshot, the status update had already got more than 400 replies and 1800 likes.
