Mark Zuckerberg

Topless Pic

Privacy Malfunction?

8/10/2012 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Zuckerberg shirtless
A photo of a topless Mark Zuckerberg is burning up the Internet right now ... immediately fueling suspicions of a major Facebook privacy screw-up.

It's unclear when or where the pic was taken ... showing the kid billionaire sans shirt with a couple of male friends. Mark's in pretty good shape for a computer nerd.

Now for the conspiracy theory ...

The image surfaced on the image-sharing site imgur ... along with a photo caption that appears to explain how the anonymous poster got a hold of the shot in the first place.

The poster claims the pic was "accidentally posted" by Facebook Director of Engineering Andrew Bosworth ... who also appears in the pic on the far right.

The poster claims Bosworth deleted the pic "seconds later" ... but it was too late, someone captured the image and splashed it to the web.

If so, it would be another black eye for the social network ... which is still trying to recover from its epically poor performance on the stock market.

We've reached out to Facebook -- so far, no comment.

How is someone accidentally posting, then removing, a picture a black-eye for facebook. Your logic makes no sense, go back to start.

I like TMZ, but this is the most irrelevant item ever posted to the site! At least a joke about MZ's pearl-clutching pose would have been SOMETHING, but otherwise, uh... we were all fairly certain he's a human being and does take his shirt off occasionally. Pointless!

If accidentally posting a pic on facebook then deleting it is scandalous then I should be plastered on the front page of TMZ. I don't get why this is news of epic proportions? Black eye? Why?
