Computer Science Students Find Bug in Facebook Code!

Cole High School students Parker Shuck and Brandon Guzman-Morales recently found a bug in a program from Facebook. While developing their own iOS app, the students downloaded the Facebook "API" code which would allow users in their app to log in using their Facebook account. But, the code they downloaded from Facebook didn't work. They were able to find the bug in the program and decided to email the engineers at Facebook to let them know.
