Re: Passwords are meaningless without privacy!
Facebook reportedly alerted those users whose account information was stolen (and it probably wouldn't have been that difficult for a hacker gain access anyway: I read that most of the passwords were along the lines of "password" or "123456").

Re: website logins
Definitely, and to be fair, the company suggested it was working on a range of responses. I'd expect that if it hasn't done so already, it will feed the details to larger online service providers. But for stolen email and FTP credentials, that might not be feasible, if their numbers are too great?

Passwords
Another reason why it's time we move beyond passwords to protect our privacy.

Passwords are meaningless without privacy!
So what if your facebook account is hacked. Don't you know that facebook is already scanning your information and making it available to other businesses and government? Everyone should consider using privacy-based services such as Ravetree, DuckDuckGo, and HushMail.

website logins
We are [intending] to create a page, so users can check whether their account was compromised

Instead of creating a page with almost 1.6 million stolen website logins, isn't it easier to contact the companies involved (Google, FB, Yahoo, etc) so these companies can contact each affected person?

Recovered the right term?
These passwords were detected - "recovery" implies getting the horse back in the barn.
