Facebook "inadvertently" set 14 million users' share settings to PUBLIC

For a period of four days in May, about 14 million Facebook users around the world had their default sharing setting for all new posts set to public, the company revealed Thursday.

The bug, which affected those users from May 18 to May 22, occurred while Facebook was testing a new feature.

First off,  I'm getting really tired of these articles calling things "bugs" or "glitches".   That's lazy reporting.   How did it happen?  Why did it happen?   What new feature were they testing?  Why would that change people's privacy settings?  Get in the weeds and do some reporting for once! 

Second, isn't it so bizarre that this kind of thing never seems to happen the other way,  where things are accidentally set to private?  Oh wait,  I forgot about this Mark Zuckerberg quote:

Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard just ask. I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS.
[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?
Zuck: People just submitted it. I don’t know why. They “trust me”. Dumb Fucks.

Screw this garbage company.
