If you found yourself clicking through other people’s Facebook profiles late last week, you may have unwittingly sent them a friend request.
Meaning that if you checking out your estranged cousin’s profile or your ex’s new partner’s profile… Facebook auto-sent them a friend request.
Facebook has since fixed the glitch and apologised for the ‘bug’.
“We fixed a bug related to a recent app update that caused some Facebook friend requests to be sent mistakenly,” a Meta spokesperson told The Daily Beast.
“We’ve stopped this from happening and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
The damage was done though…
FACEBOOK HAS A GLITCH WHERE EVERY PERSON I STALK AUTOMATICALLY SENDS THEM A FRIEND REQUEST WTF

Fb is legit adding randoms if you click on their profile.
