Facebook suffers an error and spams celebrity accounts with fake photos

The Facebook platform has registered this Wednesday a bug by which it has shown users of the social network false publications of personal profiles and pages of famous people and celebrities whom they do not follow. This error in the social network owned by Meta began to be noticed around 07:00 hours this Wednesday (mainland Spain time), as collected by the DownDetector portal.

It was then that several users have noticed this error on their corresponding walls, where images, videos and ‘memes’ have appeared that apparently did not correspond to the authorship of the owners of these accounts. Among some of these false publications were teasing images from the creator and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.

This incidence, which seems to be global, has had its highest peak around 9:00 a.m. and has begun to decrease in number of cases from 9:34, according to said portal. However, these false publications are maintained in some accounts of famous people, such as the comedian and writer Trevor Noah.
