Facebook having bug issues again

Although Facebook has acknowledged the fact that it was a bug which was introduced when they were fixing another bug. They said that a fix has been submitted to Apple.

Users complained that when they played a video in full screen mode and then shrank it, the app would place it on the left and in the space left you could see that the phone camera has been turned on.

According to Facebook, the issue came after they fixed a previous bug – the iOS app was said to be launching in landscape mode by default in version 244.

According to Facebook spokesperson “We have seen no evidence of photos or video being uploaded due to this bug.”

This is coming at a very critical time for Facebook as they are putting emphasis on their messages privacy and security.

Here is the complete statement by Facebook “We recently discovered that version 244 of the Facebook iOS app would incorrectly launch in landscape mode. In fixing tgat issue last week in v246, we inadvertently introduced a new bug that caused the app to partially navigate to the camera screen adjacent to News Feed when users tapped on photos. We have seen no evidence of photos or videos being uploaded due to this bug. We’re submitting the fix this to Apple today.”
