There are lots of stories out there including the one above, this one, and this one so check them out.

In short, there is a vulnerability with the View As feature.  This was intended to allow you to see your restrictions that you setup in facebook as if you were whatever user you were checking.  This was apparently giving access tokens that you could take to a mobile device to connect to that users account.

To the original link’s point, is this a reason to dump Facebook?
