Zuckerberg's Facebook Page Hacked

Perhaps it is not that Zuckerberg's page was hacked, but what the hacker wrote...

(CNN) -- Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's fan page was hacked Tuesday -- a high-profile breach on a site that constantly faces scrutiny about its handling of its members' private data.

The message that appeared on Zuckerberg's page under his name 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?" the message continued, referring to the founder of the Grameen Bank which has transformed millions of lives by extending micro-loans to poor people.

Zuckerberg's fan page has more than three million followers and is probably managed by media assistants to the social networking magnate, according to cyber-security experts.
The message received more than 1,800 "likes" before it was removed from the page. Facebook's representatives have not returned calls seeking comment.

So the hacker was complaining that, why has Facebook not crowd funded its members especially when they have 600,000,000 of them. Why indeed?
