Facebook is trying hack your comments
A few minutes ago, when typing “Yes” in response to a friend’s photo about friendship, Facebook tried to “help” me finish my thoughts by turning a simple “Yes” in favor of friendship into “Vote Yes On The Audit.”
The photo had nothing to to with a vote audit. And if you know me, you would know I would NEVER call for this vote recount. Therefore it is clear this finished sentence was not helping me repeat anything I had said before.
And the screenshot above was taken when I repeated the attempt to type “Yes.” That means that “Vote Yes On The Audit” is deliberately programed into Facebook right now.
Now we have another reason to proof read our Facebook responses. Not only are we in danger of looking stupid with correctly spelled incorrect words substituted by FB, but now whole political sentiments that are being forced on an unsuspecting public!
Remember please, the “Arab Spring” had Facebook’s fingerprints all over it. Then realize FB is not neutral, and not in any way your “friend.”
PS: I tried to repeat this on my wife’s Facebook account, and it didn’t happen. So it may be me who is hacked. Or FB might have an algorithm that makes this happen on randomly chosen accounts. But please keep an eye open when using FB, and never let it finish your sentences.
PPS: In an effort to stop this problem, I found a piece of advice that directed me to look at the apps that had been attached to the account, and remove any that are suspicious. I did so, and the problem stopped. I did this in a non-scientific way, so cannot say which one was the trouble maker.
