Some Facebook users are experiencing a strange phenomenon when they log-in through Facebook.com. Old chat messages are suddenly popping back up again. Even messages that are years old are suddenly resurfacing.
Some of the people it’s happening to are finding it quite traumatic, because in some cases old messages from loved ones who passed away or passed relationships are popping up.
Mashable reached out to Facebook for comment and the company released this statement:
“Earlier today, some people may have experienced Facebook resending older messages,” it read. “The issue, caused by software updates, has been fully resolved. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”
So I guess that’s that. Facebook is sorry for the inconvenience of your dead loved ones appearing to message you from beyond the grave. What a weird story.
This bug apparently only affected some users. I personally did not have this happen.
Did your old messages come back to haunt you? Tell us in the comments. The Facebook comments 😉
