Facebook says bug changed block settings on up to 800K accounts

Facebook says bug changed block settings on up to 800K accounts

Also worth noting, is the fact that the bug would only let these users see what you shared publicly, not what you shared with your friends only.

Facebook has advised those users affected that they didn't have to do anything as the issue has now been rectified.

When you block someone on Facebook, they can not see your post and do not have access to your profile.

Facebook users might have seen information in their news feeds from users that had blocked them because a bug was reportedly unblocking people, the company announced yesterday.

China and the United States are expected to launch a potentially damaging trade war, but Beijing could hit its rival with tariffs first.

If you've ever blocked anyone on Facebook, the social network may have accidentally "unblocked" that person on your behalf.

"We know that the ability to block someone is important - and we'd like to apologize and explain what happened", Egan wrote.

This means that if you blocked someone after an abusive or a frustrating incident, they were able to see at least some of your posts. Only a few weeks ago, the company reported another bug, which turned private posts of about 14 million users to public.

Affected users will be notified, and the unblocked users have been automatically re-blocked by Facebook.

It's not on the scale of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but Facebook once again has egg on its face thanks to a privacy problem.

It suggests that users check their blocked lists, and reassures them that the issue has now been resolved. Generally, younger people are more susceptible to this kind of abuse, and young women are twice as likely to be sexually harassed than men in their age group. The pairs are made of posts that a user likes/dislikes, and the actions that a user can take on content.

Over 800,000 users were affected by the bug, which Facebook admitted to on Monday.
