"Chuck Norris" was Facebook master password

And that's just for starters, dear readers! The Rumpus.net has an interview with a Facebook employee (whose identity is withheld to safeguard continued employment) about the real state of privacy on the popular social site. Bottom line: if you write something on Facebook, it's always gonna be there for Facebook employees to find (and even though the company has a policy about intruding on users' accounts, it's apparently rarely followed). And at one time the password that let any Facebook staffer log into any account was "Chuck Norris".

(Feel free to post the inevitable Chuck Norris jokes in the comments.)

Chuck Norris doesnt mow his lawn. He stares at the grass and dares it to grow.
