Facebook briefly takes over entire Internet with redirection bug
A bug with Facebook's ubiquitous embedded widgets redirected millions from the websites they were visiting to Facebook itself Thursday. It's now fixed, but for awhile, some of the largest sites in the world were inaccessible.

Visitors to such sites as CNN, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, the Gawker network (including Gizmodo), and NBC News were instantly transferred to a Facebook error page upon loading the intended site.

That you are being WATCHED and judged by the technological singularity. Be goooood!

Widgets are javascript based embedded code - this very GLP website contains many!

Those that must yield this warning, are those that seek to do "evil", or harm other consciousness, as you may refer.

Re: Facebook briefly takes over entire Internet with redirection bug
Would it surprise you to learn that it
is planned to use FB as your internet
login page. Ask yourself this... Why are
there so MANY sites that now let you
logon with your FB id and password?
Why? Everything you do on the sites
you use after using FB id to logon is
being data collected on FB servers.
FOREVER.

Just thought you might want to know.

Thanks for the heads up. Never heard of anything like that being considered. I don't use Facebook, have to wonder how that would work for people like me. Did think there was something more to this incident than meets the eye though. Wouldn't think it's that easy to take over the whole Internet and redirect major sites such as CNN that easily, apps or no apps. Glitch or no glitch.

So true. Also amazing that the computers we are willing to pay for and the software installed on them are by default set to share data with any site we visit . Amazing. Have to jumps through hoops to ensure even some tiny measure of privacy and be ever vigilant in checking those settings because they occasionally revert back to the defaults. Hardware and software we purchase and own and ave limited power to control what data of our is given to others. Geolocation. Lol . Now tv's are entering the stage, cars with black boxes, smart meters ......right to privacy ? Gone.
