Meta has fixed an error on Facebook that sent automatic friend requests when users would visit any profile.
The bug was spotted on Friday when many users took it to different social media sites and complained about the privacy breach.
Some users even named it “the end of stalking” as they believed Facebook now automatically sends friend requests when a user stalks/checks any profile.

“We fixed a bug related to a recent app update that caused some Facebook friend requests to be sent mistakenly. We’ve stopped this from happening, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused,” a spokesperson for Meta told The Daily Beast.
The glitch caught more attention as Meta was in the middle of laying off more employees. Many believe it to be an error due to the lack or inefficiency of staff.
