Facebook has now detailed what data was scrapped and stolen in the violation it was revealed two weeks ago. 30 million users, not 50 million as originally estimated, had access cards stolen by hackers.

But unless a really creepy usage case for the available data is revealed, the break may fall into the noise of unstoppable cyber security errors on the web, including Google + bugs that were covered and have now requested that the Facebook competitor turn off.
