A glitch on Facebook caused the platform to send automatic friend requests to users

If you are a stalker on social media, Facebook will totally protect your privacy until this glitch happens. A recent glitch caused friend requests to be sent automatically. Although this matter has been fixed by Meta,

The Facebook problem that caused the social network to automatically send friend invites whenever users visited any profile has been fixed by Meta. Meta expressed regret for the error in a statement it shared with The Daily Beast on Friday. A Meta representative told the newspaper, “We fixed a fault related to a recent app update that caused some Facebook friend invites to be sent accidentally.” We’ve stopped this from happening, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Unsurprisingly, the malfunction caused both amusement and confusion. Many people immediately noted that it was momentarily difficult to “Facebook stalk” other users due to a technological error. Even more concerning, several discovered that Facebook issued friend invitations to those they intended to block. Notably, the discovery of the flaw follows Meta’s announcement that 10,000 staff would be let go. By the end of 2023, the business will have cut its employment by at least 21,000 as part of Mark Zuckerberg’s “Year of Efficiency.”
