Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Fan Page Hacked

A hacker who gained access to his page began writing status messages on his behalf.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was forced to change Web addresses for his Facebook fan page late Tuesday night after a hacker gained access to the page and began to write status messages on Zuckerberg's behalf.

One message stated that Facebook should become a "social business," complete with a link to the Wikipedia page explaining the term. (A social business is a business with "positive social objectives" where investors cannot take "profits out of the enterprise as dividends.")   Roughly 1,803 people "liked" the message and 438 people commented on it before it was quickly taken down.
