Facebook bug unblocked 'blocked'

Facebook says the bug did not reinstate any friend connections that had been terminated and that 83 percent of the 800,000 users (664,000) affected by the bug only had one blocked person temporarily unblocked - which means 136,000 users may have had multiple blocked people become unblocked while the bug was in effect. Those who were unblocked could not see content that a user shared with their friends, but they could see "things posted to a wider audience", Facebook said, such as photos shared with friends of friends.

When you block someone on Facebook they can not see things you post on your profile, start conversations with you on Messenger or add you as a friend.

"People who were affected will get a notification on Facebook encouraging them to check their blocked list", Egan added.

The vast majority of the more than 800,000 people affected by the bug had only one person they had blocked be temporarily unblocked, according to Facebook. However, because of the bug, someone who was unblocked could have been able to message a user who had blocked them in the past.
