Facebook has confirmed it is working to fix a problem with its main feed after many users reported seeing waves of posts unrelated to their interests.
On Wednesday morning, Facebook users around the world began reporting what some considered “spam” messages appearing on their feeds, often posts from random users targeting celebrities or famous accounts on the platform.
In many cases, the bug has caused users’ feeds to be completely filled with unrelated messages, appearing on top of posts from friends and connections on the platform.
In response, the social media giant confirmed the issue and said it was working to fix it.
“We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with their Facebook feed. We’re working to get things back to normal as soon as possible and apologize for the inconvenience,” said a spokesperson for parent company Meta.
Downdetector.co.uk, which tracks the service status of websites, received more than 2,500 reports from Facebook users on Wednesday morning about the channel, with some describing it as a “weird problem”.
