Facebook users livid with lack of firm's apology following bug driven 'privacy breach'

Washington, June 25 (ANI): Facebook users have demanded an apology from the social media giant for the reported leak of their email addresses and phone numbers due to a bug.

Although Facebook's security team is embarrassed and has ensured that nothing like this will happen again, people are upset that Facebook did not apologize for leaking their information.

Acoording to the Huffington Post, this bug impacted 0.5 percent of Facebook's 1.1 million users.

People have become increasingly suspicious about their online privacy since due to recent revaltions that the US National Security Agency (NSA) is collecting people's internet and phone data for national security reasons, the report added.

Facebook had announced about the bug by email and in a public blog post and said that while downloading archives through Facebook's 'Download Your Information' tool, people may also have inadvertently received their friends' email address or phone numbers that were otherwise never meant to be public.
