Facebook bug affected 14 million people’s privacy settings

From Mashable:

The advertising giant wants you to believe that you’re in control of what data you share, and who you share it with. We know that’s mostly an illusion… from May 18 to May 22, a Facebook bug automatically set a host of users’ new post settings to “public” regardless of their selected setting. It wasn’t fixed until May 27

I believe Facebook is making a good faith effort to fix things. However problems like this don’t help. I still see no reason a dental office should be engaged with Facebook.

BTW if Facebook was a healthcare entity and had a 14 million person breach the HIPAA fine would likely amount to $2,800,000,000.
