"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 Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? http://bit.ly/fs6rT3 What do you think? #hackercup2011"

As you can see from the image above, the post generated over 400 comments and 1,800 likes in just three minutes. Thinking that the creator of Facebook would be fairly cautious with his account, one might think Zuckerberg posted this himself. However, it seems as though his page was indeed hacked as Facebook took down the page shortly after the post.

The perpetrator behind the hacking of Zuckerberg's fan page long with his or her intentions with the message remain a mystery, but we're definitely keeping an eye out for any further hacking as the hacked status post alludes to.

    Seems to prove how dangerous Facebook is. I can't believe other are thinking it is safe. Criticize me if you want, the warning is written on the wall...or in this case, the post.

    I hear they are still having trouble with the "Mobile Phone Posting" spam issues. Aparently they just hide the email addresses that phones post to, so if you spam facebook enough, you'll get a few hits on people's pages.

    And there is no way to turn that feature off.
