A piece of Facebook’s source code somehow showed up in one user’s browser. From “Facebook has a built in ability to track who’s looking at your profile” at digg:
I was on facebook and out of no where some of the php source code showed up (I didn’t do anything illegal, and I still don’t know why it showed up). I browsed through it and found this interesting bit. Make of it what you will.
Partial transcript of the image:
// Monitoring these people's profile viewage.
// stored in central db on profile views.
// Helpful for law enforcement to monitor stalkers and stalkees.
$monitor = array('[blurred]' => 1, '[blurred]' => 1); // Put baddies (hotties?) in here
return ($monitor[$userid] || check_super($user_id)); // Stalk ourselves too.
The authenticity of the code is questionable. If it is indeed real, the code comments provide an interesting glimpse into Facebook culture.
