Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook fan page was hacked, with the hacker posting a message calling on the company to transform into a "social business".

An AP report says that the message, seemingly posted on Facebook from Mark Zuckerberg's account, was quickly removed (together with the fan page), but still received more than 1,800 likes and hundreds of comments.

The message read: "Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a 'social business' the way Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think?"

The report says that Facebook has not made a statement about the incident.
