This morning, I brought up Hulu.com as I read that linking your Facebook Connect account added a free month of Hulu Plus to my Hulu account. I love Hulu Plus! Why wouldn't I take them up on that deal? It's an easy enough process, simply click the familiar Facebook Connect button. However, when I clicked the button, something at Hulu went awry.
The widget loaded endlessly, so I refreshed the page. I tried clicking the button again, but it still didn't work. I tried refreshing the page again. This time, it logged me into the account of a Hulu.com employee, Thomas Moore. Thomas is also a former employee of Facebook according to his Facebook page as well as LinkedIn .
Update 1: Ryan Lawler over at Gigaom also posted about this issue: http://gigaom.com/video/hulu-facebook-disconnect/
Update 2: Hulu has reponded with a blog post on the issue, looks like it's under control. Thanks Hulu! : http://blog.hulu.com/2011/07/01/hulu-facebook-connect-update/
