Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook had his fan page hacked!

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook fan page has been hacked. The hacker has posted a message calling on the company to transform into a "social business".

The message, posted on Facebook from Mark Zuckerberg's account, was removed quickly together with the corresponding fan page, but not quickly enough to go by unnoticed. In the process, the message has received more than 1800 likes and hundreds of comments.

The message read: "Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a 'social business' the way Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011?

Facebook still has made no official statement about the incident, but if Zuckerberg's fan page was indeed hacked, it is a big deal.

Many will be asking questions like, if the Facebook CEO can't keep his Facebook account safe from intruders, who can?
