Following several reports of spam from celebrity pages, Facebook parent company Meta confirmed a problem with the business’s Feed on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Meta said:

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble with their Facebook Feed. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologise for any inconvenience,” 

A Meta representative said in a revised statement that “configuration change[d] led some customers to have issues with their Facebook Feed. The representative continued by saying that the problems have been fixed.

The Feed was the subject of 81% of the complaints made to Downdetector, a tool that allows users to report difficulties and outages with websites.

Several individuals who commented on Downdetector and Twitter reported experiencing a problem where comments made by random users on celebrity accounts would show up in their own Feed. When checking the Feed early on Wednesday, CNBC noticed the problem as well.

The Facebook Feed is where the majority of the postings from the people you follow appear.

In October, users were unable to use Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger for many hours. This was the most recent big incident involving Meta’s businesses. The traffic between routers in Facebook’s data centers around the world was disrupted as a result of backend updates that, according to Facebook, produced “problems.”

The industry leader in social media has not given further details regarding the latest problem.
