Report Says: Twitter Takeover Caused By Facebook Glitchis is confirmed
There was report that Facebook and Twitter users reporting en-masse of a Twitter takeover of their Facebook walls several hours ago which was reported in Mashable.
The report said that anyone with the Twitter or Friendfeed app installed on Facebook saw their posts being automatically pushed to their Facebook feeds which had affected Facebook Beacon settings.
Now, a new report claims that it is confirmed that it was a glitch on the part of Facebook, and that it is now fixed. Bret Taylor, FriendFeed’s co-founder said:
We have received numerous reports of excessive FriendFeed posts showing up in Facebook this evening. While we are not 100% sure, it appears to be an issue on Facebook’s end due to ignoring application settings. We have disabled all FriendFeed updates to Facebook until we are sure the problem is resolved.
Facebook team said:
Earlier this evening, a small Facebook bug allowed a handful of apps to publish to the stream on behalf of users who had previously authorized the app. The situation has now been resolved, and all application settings will remain intact for users.
The report says that all Facebook apps should be fine now, so you can unblock them if you did during the Twitter takeover.
