Facebook unveils security tools after Zuckerberg’s page hacked [Network World]

Interesting privacy times for Facebook; see this page for more on the “hacker posting”

Coincidence or not, Facebook today announced two new security measures -- wider use of HTTPS and the introduction of "social authentication" -- less than 24 hours after the Facebook page of company founder Mark Zuckerberg was defaced by a hacker.

A blog post by Facebook's Alex Rice ties the security announcement to Friday being "Data Privacy Day," but the press and bloggers are having a high time connecting the news and Zuckerberg's victimization, whether or not there is actually any connection.
