    Wait what?! Facebook stored unencrypted passwords?!
    Of course they did! The password you use says a lot about you so, if you really think about what Facebook stands for, it's not a surprise they did it.

    I find this highly surprising from such a reliable company.

    Some is a subset of all, and twenty hundred million is still hundreds of millions....I Think it's basically everyone using facebook lite. Is this not illegal? are there zero repercussions for doing this? There must be some sort of punishment for mishandling data
