On Friday, news broke that some of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s private messages to users on Facebook had been deleted from the inboxes of the receiving party without any notification.
According to TechCrunch’s Josh Costine: “An email receipt of a Facebook message from 2010 reviewed by TechCrunch proves Zuckerberg sent people messages that no longer appear in their Facebook chat logs or in the files available from Facebook’s Download Your Information tool,” he wrote.
This raises speculation as Mark Zuckerberg is currently set to testify for the mishandling of user information on Facebook. The user data of around 50 million Facebook users wound up in the hands of a private research firm without the permission of the users.
Facebook stated that the messages were deleted for security related reasons, not giving a clear answer to why Zuckerberg’s messages were being hidden from the recipients.
More details as the story develops.
