Facebook is definitely not doing well to get their reputation back on track.

On Thursday the social media giant announced that they had discovered a 'bug' in their system, which caused millions of status updates to be posted publicly.

The technical error made the suggested audience 'public' as opposed to the previous audience settings. According to Facebook, this affected 14 million users, between 18 and 27 May.

According to an interview with Recode, Facebook said the millions of users affected, and those whose posts were made public incorrectly will be notified. Facebook also said that it has changed the setting of individual posts shared during the ten-day period back to the users; original preferences, but of course they cannot do anything about the time during which they were made public.
