The economic incentive to users and seems to be a strategy for Facebook. We already reported how the payments began to see ads, social network and now has a program to pay developers to find programming errors or bugs.

The 'Bug Bounty Program' (rewards program errors) has offered $ 500 for failure found and has come to pay up to 5,000 for a really good discovery.

The program released its progress on the security blog Facebook, which says that what is desired is that developers lose afraid to report all bugs they find and motivate a team that gives good results for all. "It was fascinating to watch the launch of this program within Facebook.

First, it is amazing how the independent security talent from around the world have mobilized to help, "said Joe Sullivan, head of the security office social network.

 So far, Facebook has received reports of bugs to developers from 16 countries, and the company claims to have paid more than $ 40,000 in the three weeks leading the initiative. And the ranking of 'cazaerrores' more effective at leading a user has already received $ 7,000 to be discovered six serious errors.

With the success of the program, some ask to be extended to applications and programs made by third parties using their Facebook profile, but this is unaffected by the number of people involved in this process.

For those who fear that has flaws in these applications, people Facebook is committed to keeping your computer that analyzes these applications. Sullivan said at the end: "An error rewards program is a great way to engage with researchers and a way to improve security in a complex technological environment." Waits for a more accurate report on how many bugs have been resolved with this program, but more importantly, that these corrections are reflected in the user experience.

 However it is valuable that Facebook does not ignore the mistakes, something that looked like he was doing just a few weeks ago, and you begin to worry about correct, especially when related to the safety of themselves and their users.
