Most Facebook users couldn’t care less
At this point everyone plugged into the zeitgeist knows about how Russian cyber agents used Facebook to create distrust and division among American voters in an attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election. Despite that scandal, billions of Facebook users still log into the social network at least once a month.

Mark Zuckerberg blames all of Facebook’s problem on all those pesky human users

The company is also having to significantly ramp up its investment on everything from content moderation to security because there’s, well, lots of bad people who keep trying to use Facebook to wreck Facebook.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tell-account-1-50-million-213639244.html
...If you log into Facebook from a smartphone app or Web browser and have to re-enter your login information, you may have been affected by the breach—but maybe not.
