Facebook E-Mail Glitch Raises Privacy Questions [online.wsj.com]
Facebook Inc. said a glitch with a software update caused some email messages to be sent to the wrong recipients for "a short time" late Wednesday, raising questions about privacy on the site.

A Facebook spokeswoman said the company was still investigating the problem and didn't have specific data on the number of people affected by the glitch.

"During our regular code push yesterday evening, a bug caused some misrouting to a small number of users for a short period of time," Facebook said in a statement.

I'm not surprised. FaceBook is one of the glitchiest sites I've ever used. I actually stopped using it for quite a while other than to check messages and post 'the glitch of the day'. I understand they have huge traffic, but it doesn't seem like it's coded to be a 'work horse'... I think 'show pony' code is a much more fitting description.

I do get a lot of error messages on Facebook so I see your point.

Mack.
