Facebook Private Messages appearing on Timeline isn’t Privacy Bug

TechCrunch alerted readers that private messages were appearing on Timeline as posted by friends.   I think people might actually be getting paranoid about Facebook privacy now. I must say I’ve never trusted it either.  So is it a hoax or not?
