Facebook bug unblocks unwanted connections for a bit

Facebook bug unblocks unwanted connections for a bit

It should be noted that in the week or so this bug remained active, a large majority of users had only a single person from their blocked list temporarily unblocked. At least unless you say otherwise.

Facebook on Monday said it is notifying more than 800,000 users that a software bug temporarily unblocked people at the social network and its Messenger service. According to an announcement on Facebook's news blog, the company is notifying 800,000 Facebook and Messenger users that people they blocked may have been unblocked between May 29 and June 5.

Facebook's blocking feature enables users to restrict certain individuals from viewing anything on their timeline, tagging them in any post, or starting conversations with them on the Messenger app.

ANOTHER FACEBOOK FOIBLE has reared its head, this time in the form of a big that quietly unblocked blocked users so they could see the content and posts from their, er, blockers.

Responding to Facebook's blog, TechCrunch's Josh Constine said in a tweet that the block bug would further shake the confidence of stalking and abuse victims who trust the platform. Egan stated that the bug did not reinstate friend connections that had been severed and that those who should be blocked have been blocked once again. They would also have been able to send messages to the user, something a blocked person usually cannot do. By Facebook's own admission: "There are many reasons why people block another person on Facebook".

"Their relationship may have changed or they may want to take a break from someone posting content they find annoying".

Facebook admitted that up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked by British consultancy Cambridge Analytica, which worked for US President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.
