Facebook Data Breach Article

Facebook recently admitted to a HUGE data breach. This could be a good article to explain it to students and consider its implications as part of our study on big data and privacy.


Here's a good follow up website students can use to see if their passwords are compromised. I usually assign it AND ask them to try it with 3 family members too and write a brief reaction response. (The number of passwords changed as a result of this activity is usually substantial! I'd consider this community service in CS).
