Facebook reveals bug that unblocked users

That ex you blocked on Facebook may have had access to your posts after all. At least unless you say otherwise.

While it was active between May 29 and June 5, the bug allowed unblocked users to contact the people who blocked them through Messenger. The social networking giant that doesn't consider itself a monopoly has said that a software "bug" unblocked some people who had been blocked by another user.

"We know that the ability to block someone is important and we'd like to apologise and explain what happened", Egan added. The other 17 percent of users had more than one person unblocked, thanks to the bug.
