Facebook spam filter breaks – Removing millions of posts.

In the last few hours Facebooks Spam detection system appears to have completely broken. I first noticed it with my own posts … and then a few more friends … and then several more … and then dozens.

Even Facebooks own Community Standards page is being blocked as Spam.

Nothing is safe.

Here are some more screenshots

After realizing this wasn’t an isolated issue. I took to Twitter to confirm the scope of Facebooks breakage. It appears to be vast.

Originally, I thought someone was abusing the report system. Others seem to think that Facebook staff themselves are removing the posts (unlikely, but not impossible)

And of course…

I will update this story with more notable examples if I find any.
