Facebook users were in despair as a result of a worrying bug that appeared to have revealed their online “stalking” habits.
Facebook has developed into one of the most significant and lucrative digital businesses in the world with millions of users logging on and checking their notifications and news feed each day.
However sometimes it has it’s problems!
Instant friend invitations have been issued to seen profiles as a result of the reported bug, which has users concerned that their ex-partners, old pals, or even complete strangers are now aware of their searching and ‘stalking’.
A few people were so humiliated by the incident that they thought about cancelling their Facebook accounts entirely.
The bug forced the Meta-owned firm to quickly produce a patch to fix the problem.
A representative for Meta told The Daily Beast ‘We fixed a bug related to a recent app update that caused some Facebook friend requests to be sent mistakenly. We’ve stopped this from happening and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused’
To see any pending friend requests, go to the “Friend Requests” tab on the left-hand side of the page and choose “View send requests.” There might be a few you didn’t know you even had!
This is not the first time that Facebook has caused issues for it’s users but they continue to return to the app!
