Over 3 years later, "deleted" Facebook photos are still online

http://j.mp/xMjyV9  (ars technica)
   "Facebook is still working on deleting photos from its servers in a
    timely manner nearly three years after Ars first brought attention to
    the topic. The company admitted on Friday that its older systems for
    storing uploaded content "did not always delete images from content
    delivery networks in a reasonable period of time even though they were
    immediately removed from the site," but said it's currently finishing
    up a newer system that makes the process much quicker. In the
    meantime, photos that users thought they "deleted" from the social
    network months or even years ago remain accessible via direct link."
