Facebook 'bug' temporarily disappears some .co.uk links

'Spammy, unsafe' URLs mainly harboured by news outfits, it seems ... bitch

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Stories posted on Facebook by venerable organs such as The Register were temporarily unavailable yesterday morning due to a "glitch" on the ubiquitous social network.

For a brief time it appeared that many .co.uk links inserted on Facebook had been deemed "spammy or unsafe" by the site, which meant sharing of such posts was blocked.

Links posted on Facebook pages from the BBC, Trinity Mirror, ZDNet and El Reg failed to be shared because of the apparent technical error.

Facebook coughed to the cockup in a terse statement to the Reg:

"It was a small bug which has now been fixed."

However, Facebook declined to offer any further explanation for the glitch when pressed for more information about what had gone wrong. ®
