Dating Service Mined Facebook Photos

If you go to the dating service website called Lovely-Faces, some of the photos there may look a bit familiar. They should.... the photos used for the dating service startup were lifted directly from the pages of Facebook. Déjà vu Mr. Zuckerberg, déjà vu. big grin

Ironically, the story of Facebook's genesis tells of its founder Mark Zuckerberg getting in trouble for hacking Harvard University computers while a student to get pictures of coeds for comparison with each other at a website called "Face Mash" that he created.
