Facebook users were on the warpath overnight, after claiming that private messages they sent between 2007 and 2009 were being published publicly on their profiles. They were outraged at the 'bug' that invaded their privacy.

It's yet another unwelcome privacy row for Facebook. What's odd about this one is that it's all a misunderstanding.
