Le réseau social américain a annoncé jeudi avoir eu un bug informatique en mai. À la suite d'une erreur des paramètres de confidentialité ont changé et ces messages sont rendus publics. Cette fois-ci quelque 14 millions d'utilisateurs ont vu leurs publications rendues par défaut publiques même s'ils optaient d'habitude pour un partage entre "amis". " Ce bug s'est produit car nous étions en train de construire une nouvelle façon de partager des éléments " à la une " sur votre profil, comme une photo".

Après l'affaire Cambridge Analytica et ses révélations, puis la confirmation que des fabricants de smartphones ont par le passé été autorisés à avoir accès à des données d'utilisateurs (a priori uniquement avec leur accord), Facebook nous fait le coup du bug.

Tous ceux qui le font n'ont plus de carrière souvent et plus d'argent. " a surenchéri l'ex présentateur de NRJ12". Mais le reste, disons la vérité, c'est pour l'argent.

En temps normal, lorsqu'un utilisateur veut publier un statut, une photo ou un message sur son mur, le réseau social lui propose automatiquement la même audience que celle qu'il avait choisie lors de sa publication précédente. Ce "bug" est intervenu le 18 mai, et a été résolu le 22 mai. Nous avons corrigé ce problème et, à partir d'aujourd'hui, nous informons tous les intéressés et leur demandons de revoir tous les messages qui ont été publiés pendant cette période. Cinq jours supplémentaires ont été nécessaires pour rendre les messages privés et accessibles "seulement aux amis". Elle précise: "Le bug n'a pas eu de répercussions sur ce que les gens avaient publié précédemment et ils pouvaient toujours choisir l'audience", en présentant les excuses du groupe. L'anomalie a probablement touché les utilisateurs ayant des " photos à la une ".

Cette "erreur" arrive dans un contexte particulier et fort embarrassant pour le réseau social qui n'a pas encore bouclé l'épisode tumultueux de la protection des données personnelles de ses utilisateurs.
