You know what they say about Murphy’s Law – anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, or something to that effect. Well, when it comes to a social network like Facebook, we would have more or less expected it to function the way it should, that is, being bug-free and all after all this while of fine tuning. Apparently not, as Murphy’s Law decides to drop by the world’s largest and most popular social network, where a new bug actually temporarily reset Like counts and comment threads on sites that carry its now ubiquitous Like buttons and Comments plug-in.
It is good to know, however, that this is but a temporary situation, as all Like counts as well as comments ought to be restored to the original or most recent state once Facebook has finalized a fix. This particular Facebook comments bug happened on March 25th in the afternoon, according to certain websites, where the majority of those sites had not www URL prefix. Well, all’s well that ends well, I suppose.
