The Death of Social Media, Cont.

“oops,” said Internet power-user Mark Faceberg.

Internet Power User Mark Faceberg wants you to know (late on a Friday afternoon) that, hey, only 29M Faceboogers were hacked, not 50M, and no one hacked the other conquests, er, properties like What’s App or Instagram, etc:

People can check whether they were affected by visiting our Help Center. In the coming days, we’ll send customized messages to the 30 million people affected to explain what information the attackers might have accessed, as well as steps they can take to help protect themselves, including from suspicious emails, text messages, or calls.


“For 15 million people, attackers accessed two sets of information — name and contact details (phone number, email, or both, depending on what people had on their profiles)…

“For 14 million people, the attackers accessed the same two sets of information, as well as other details people had on their profiles.”

By other details, he means your location, gender, relationship status, your recent search and personal physical location data. No big, right?

    According to the Help Center, I’m good.

    So, can I also declare myself safe from the Great Facebook Hack of 2018?
