08 June, 2018, 02:58 | Author: Tara Roberts
Facebook has revealed a new bug that switched 14 million users' privacy settings to public without their knowledge. This time it was caused by an internal bug that set 14 million Facebook user's posts to be posted publicly. Your secrets are safe - unless someone saw them, of course. This bug affects posts shared between May 18 and May 22. These featured items are publicly visible, but Facebook inadvertently extended that setting to all new posts from those users. We have fixed this issue and starting today we are letting everyone affected know and asking them to review any posts they made during that time. People could have changed the individual audience setting on posts, but would have had to notice the setting was different from what they'd chosen.
"We'd like to apologise for this mistake", said Erin Egan, Facebook's head of privacy.
