No. of Facebook likes getting doubled with every Share

The recent flaw revealed in Facebook is the automatic increment in the number of facebook "likes" of the webpages irrespective of whether the users have clicked the like button or not,or even visited the page in question.

The flaw came into limelight after Facebook announced that it has surpassed the milestone of one billion monthly active users.

It has been found by a US security researcher that whenever someone sends the webpage address to his friend using the facebook private messaging system,it automatically adds two likes to that webpage.

Even if someone leaves a comment under any story within a webpage,the count of the facebook likes will increase,BBC reported the flaw.

When the giant itself was asked about this,it admitted the very existence of flaw and told that "We did recently find a bug with our social plug-ins where at times the count for the share or Like goes up by two,and we are working on fix to solve the issue now".

In all this discussion,one new thing came into limelight that whatever figure the 'Like counter' shows is not only the number of likes the page has got but it also includes the number of times the page has been shared,though the number appears next to the word "Like" and the site's distinctive thumbs up icon.

So,even if you are sharing any webpage with your friend to highlight some negative content,inadvertently you are making that webpage popular as your share will automatically increase the Like counter of that webpage.

Although Facebook is saying it to be the flaw,who knows whether it was done intentionally by the clever mind to make the giant go even more popular.Anyways,Facebook will have to fix the issue as soon as possible,as it has gone quite popular now.


  1. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

  3. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
