Facebook is one of the biggest social networks in the world today. Even so, the company cannot keep its own Twitter and Instagram accounts safe.
Both of these accounts have been hacked earlier this week.
Facebook Messes up Once Again
Facebook isn’t alone in this regard either.
The wave of attacks also includes HBO, the NFL, and the New York Times, among others.
How the accounts were compromised and why they are all affected at once, is a big mystery.
What is remarkable is how competing social network Facebook is among those affected.
Both @Facebook and @Messenger have fallen victim to a hostile takeover.
Twitter swiftly locked the accounts down and are looking to return access to the rightful owners.
Instagram, a platform owned by Facebook, also saw some accounts getting compromised in the process.
Unsurprisingly, Facebook’s own account on this platform was taken over by the same hacking group.
This is all very remarkable, given how Facebook wants to enter the financial sector through its Libra currency.
If this company cannot keep its own social media accounts safe, one has to wonder how they will fare with people’s financial details.
It is evident that the Libra is not going anywhere soon, especially when situations like these continue to unfold.
