Facebook Name Change
In a dramatic “marketing” move, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg “announced” that Facebook is changing its name to “Spybook.”
“Since people found out that we’ve been collecting non-Facebook-related data on them and providing it to other people, we figured we might as well officially change the name of Facebook to Spybook,” stated Zuckerberg to a mixed crowd of techies and reporters, adding that it’s “kinda the In Thing these days.”
“Hey, we’ve been helping the government with data mining on our subscribers for years,” he added, “and what with the news coming out about NSACIAFBIetc™ also snooping collecting valuable information on everyone in the United States, we might as well get some of the pie for ourselves, just like our friends at Google have been.”
The announcement came on the “heels” of news that the “feral” government is attempting to have Edward “The Leak” Snowden extradited “back” to the United States from wherever he’s “hiding” this week.
Facebook further announced the fix of a tracing bug it said inadvertently “exposed” the private information of over six million users when Facebook’s previously unknown “shadow” profiles accidentally “merged” with user accounts in data “history” record requests.
The personal information “leaked” by the bug is information that had “not” been given to Facebook by the users.
It is data Facebook has been “compiling” on its users behind closed doors, “without their consent.”
A “growing” number of Facebook users are “furious” and demand to know who saw “private” information they had “expressly” not given to Facebook.
According to Reuters, the data leak spanned a year beginning in 2012.
