Mark Zuckerberg applied the tricolor filter to his Facebook DP to support the Digital India initiative of Narendra Modi. And shared the FB own's link to apply the filter. Modi reciprocated and so did many of the Indians. But there was some news website thought there is something fishy in the code and started reporting that the code contains some reference to internet.org and suggested applying this specific DP can be an endorsement of it's internet.org initiative.
The code on the FB tricolor filter page clearly had mention of internetorg but it seems out to be an innocuous code according to Facebook.
is absolutely no connection between updating your profile picture for
digital India and Internet.org,” a company spokesman said late on Monday
night. “An engineer mistakenly used the words ‘Internet.org profile
picture’ as a shorthand name he chose for part of the code. But this
product in no way connects to or registers support for Internet.org. We
are changing the code today to eliminate any confusion.”
For now, Facebook has swayed away the fears that a support for digital India is not automatically an endorsement of internet.org. But the engineer in question who had made the mistake seems to be too much obsessed with his company's bug flagship idea of internet.org. Whether we are interested or not, Facebook coders are really interested in internet.org or are they so disinterested in coding that they copy pasted some stuff without going through the code meticulously? Well the former reason looks more plausible.
