Whoever said that having a Facebook account isn’t fun? Recently, some Facebook users have the pleasure or displeasure of coming face to face with their past. No, this has nothing to do with some mystical journey, but with a funny glitch that seems to have affected hundreds of Facebook users.
After having to face the countless waves of users who got duped by fake news, it would seem that Mark Zuckerberg’s wunderkind will have to face another trial. Fortunately, this time it’s not about fake news, but about a funny glitch which affects random users.
According to some of the glitch’s ‘victims,’ sometimes comments and pictures posted months or years ago on the timeline, resurface. And that’s not even the nasty part – it would seem that Facebook recognizes the old posts/pictures as being new, and the new posts as being old.
Now, it may look some something totally harmless, but imagine how your SO would act if she sees on your timeline that you’ve just ended a relationship. But, there’s also a bright side to this – imagine how many people you can troll if you know how to take advantage of this Facebook glitch.
Unfortunately, according to the company, the glitch does not seem to follow a certain pattern, meaning that it hits random users. So far, only about a hundred users reported this problem to Facebook. The rest of the accounts seem to be unaffected.
After taking a closer look at the glitch, the company said that the Year In Review video slideshow might have something to do with this hilarious glitch. According to Facebook, all the people who reported this glitch said that it occurred after activating the review video in their timeline.
However, the company did not offer a plausible explanation as to why this happened. So, what to do in case of Facebook Glitch? Step one – don’t panic.
If you’re using the mobile version of Facebook, you should try downgrading the application to see if the glitch still occurs. It would also be a good idea to deactivate the Year In Review slideshow just until this problem is solved.
Last, but not least – pray that the company repairs this glitch as soon as possible to save you from having to deal with all the embarrassing things posted a long time ago.
