Posting something on someones wall isn't so much invading as it is leaving a sticky note on their door. By that metric UPS invades peoples homes quite regularly when they fail to deliver a package. Had he actually accessed any non-public details of a users account that might be one thing, but the only data he was able to view was the post he had created himself. In short, it was his data, from his account, it just happened to be located on someone else's page. Honestly it's not even that bad of a vulnerability, more like a mild nuisance.
