Facebook Bug Causes Users’ Feeds to Be Spammed

Posted by in category: futurism

Facebook suffered a bug leading to users’ feeds being spammed with posts from strangers on the pages of celebrities on the site earlier today.

The social media platform’s parent company Meta blamed the problem on a “configuration change” in a statement to Metro.co.uk, adding: “We resolved the issue as quickly as possible for everyone who was impacted, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

The technical glitch meant that when anyone posted a comment on a celebrity’s page, it appeared on the feed of anyone who followed that celebrity. This issue reportedly began at around 6.30 am BST on Wednesday, August 24.
