News: Company reportedly working to resolve the problem.
A bug in Facebook’s mobile site has accidentally exposed the view counts of users’ posts.
The issue was raised by several users on micro blogging site Twitter, where users said that they were able to see view counts next to their posts as well as on the content from organisation pages.
The bug has presently affected only Facebook’s mobile site, and not Facebook for desktop or the company’s official mobile apps.
The bug has reportedly affected only a limited number of users, and the view counts for each post is a simple way to see how many shares a post has received with friends, while also reflecting how many people actually saw the post and responded with a like or comment.
Facebook has confirmed the bug and has said that it is removing the view counts from user posts and the changes should already be taking effect.
