AT&T has admitted that several of its customers who attempted to log into Facebook were mistakenly redirected into other users' accounts. AT&T spokesman Michael Coe told the Associated Press that a network problem was behind some of the misdirected Facebook logins, and that only a small number of customers were affected.

But Facebook has absolutely no respect for users, and this isn't the only case. Give us your email password! Allow this "application" to access all of your data without knowing what it does! We're sharing all of your info by default, unless you figure out our weird multi-level privacy settings! And to hell with encryption!
