Facebook did this confession through an update in a one month old blog post, whose apparent goal is to save people from being attracted.


Facebook said it will notify “Hundreds of Millions of Facebook Lite Users,” a lighter version of Facebook for users where internet speeds are slow and bandwidth is expensive, and “tens of millions of other Facebook users.” The company also said “Tens of Thousands of Instagram Users” will be notified of the exposure.
