Bug that caused some posts as spam, now removed: Facebook

Facebook removed bug

Leading social networking giant, Facebook held responsible for marking some of the posts as spam. Just after a day of several complaints, it mended the bug that has caused a number of posts to be marked as spam.

Apologizing for this blunder, Facebook tweeted: “We have fixed a bug that caused some posts to be incorrectly marked as spam. We’ve restored the posts that were affected and are very sorry this happened.”

Reporting about the same in NY times, an American Journalist and Author Salena Zito, who wrote in the NY times “Why Trump’s supporters won’t care about Cohen and Manafort” told that her article was marked as spam and then removed.

Later she tweeted, “Regarding my story being taken down on my Facebook page (as well as many others) and marked spam or not up to Community Standards Facebook has responded approximately 14 hours after I inquired as to why. It was a bug.”

Facebook responded: “Hi Salena, a bug caused some posts to be incorrectly marked as spam and removed. We’ve fixed the issue and restored the posts. We’re really sorry this happened”.

Nonetheless, there were several other reports that appealed that Facebook posts were deleted automatically, even after posting them. One of the reports by The Independent stated: “Numerous people report they have shared an update on their page, only to find that it has disappeared after it has been posted.”

However, the most used social media platform has not retorted on the same yet.
