So any notion that Hulu might be finally moving in the right direction, even after they put themselves up for sale can just be tossed out the window. The video-streaming service hit another roadblock this week, as their Facebook integration launch ended in failure, at least for now.

I guess if you're into the whole live someone else's life kind of thing, it's not such a bad feature, but for everyone else, we'd prefer to see our own information.
The good news here is that Hulu says it was not the doing of a hack attempt, instead it was simply a coding error.
Richard Tom, VP of platform technology spoke on this in a blog post this week.
