I therefore conclude that Facebook is afraid of hackers. With the more than half billion users worldwide, FB needs to fight hackers at all cost to protect private info of its users.

I’m surprised Facebook hired a hacker. It’s a hot competition between the giant websites lately. I wonder how it would end up.
