This is quite surprising. Nearly any commercial LDAP or other security access system stores only the hash of the password. Did Facebook use home-made security? For their size, you would certainly think they’d just buy a suitable commercial product.
When I worked, I was involved with the single sign-on system in a large bank, where we had 250,000 employees with logins. We used the Novell eDirectory LDAP to store the credentials.
.....another example of Zuckerberg screwing over the American people.

"The company said the passwords were stored on internal company servers, where no outsiders could access them."
"The company" knows as well as everybody else that more info is stolen by those sitting inside the firewalls than those sitting outside.

Everybody has stored user data in plain text at some point. Encryption is a pain. Especially when the encryption level you’re using goes out of vogue, so you have to go bigger but in the case of upgrades you still have to read the old stuff and slowly replace it. Ugh. We all know it’s wrong, but it’s fast and easy.

There is no valid reason why anyone in an organization, especially the size of Facebook, needs to have access to users' passwords in plain text."
Worth repeating. This is sheer lunacy. You always store encrypted and validate against a hash.

Facebook is run by liberals - they don’t give a damn about anyone’s security... Not ours - not even fellow liberals.

Wow, Facebook appears to have the award for sleazy untrustworthy employees.
Get to it, Google. You know you’re number 1.
