An Associate Press (AP) exclusive tells the story of a glitch that allowed AT&T
wireless users to log into the Facebook accounts of other users. This glitch was
“the result of a routing problem at the family’s wireless carrier, AT&T”.
It seems like the users didn’t use a Facebook application, but, instead,
logged into Facebook via their phone’s Internet browser. From there the Internet
lost track of who was who. Instead of putting the users into the correct
Facebook account, they were put into the Facebook accounts of other users.
What’s alarming is it doesn’t seem like the users could have done anything to
prevent the error.
