I didn't even notice.

I'm also not on Facebook.

And I don't own a television.

/Have you met my supermodel girlfriend?
//she's Canadian

People had to log into their accounts and it's a farking news story. Could there be a more accurate depiction of snowflakes?

This is actually something every platform should do occasionally for security. Devices can be stolen, and it doesn't hurt to make people type their password again occasionally to verify they remember it.

The fact that anyone, anywhere, ever would biatch about logging in once... Is ridiculous. Now if it was in every page refresh or losing of a tab, that'd be an issue. If it was even daily or weekly, that might be worth asking around if anyone else is experiencing it.

But once? Snowflake indeed.

Some people chalked it up to some Big Tech Global Conspiracy. Some folks are deeply damaged.

Facebook is full of narcissists and very lonely sad people.

There were lots of free speech blocking posts too.  "I posted a pro trump thing and I had to log in again, I'm going over to mewe.  Had enough of fb not letting me speak freely."  Yeah, bye felicia.

It sounds like a great place to find sexual partners, then.

I checked Facebook the other day and saw some chatter about this. It didn't affect me, apparently. People were worried lol.

The last time it happened it was to stop some hack, so I wasn't worried.

Honestly, this isn't news.

/welcome to fark, I know

All facebook posts must contain Bernie Saders memes or you get logged out. Zuckbot 2.1.359 desires this so it is so.

If they're anything like my father, expect them to have no idea what the password is, that the email on record is no longer in use (no password for that, either) and that any phone on record won't work either as he can't follow the phone call (it is a land line, and he can't write it down fast enough).

Don't be surprised if this is a large section of Facebook's business.

Could be useful to know that you can freak people out by deleting their cookies.

I had two friends that had put their Facebook profile on silent that came back.  I wonder if it is related.

I might not be surprised, but surprise wouldn't prevent scorn or disdain either way.
