Did Facebook Troll You Today Like The Banter Merchants They Are?
Did you see some of your old photos spontaneously appear on your wall today? Did you think 'what the chuff? Who's got my log in and is bantering me all the way to Christmas?'. Did you think 'Jesus, I really did look like a terrible mess in 2014?'. Were you left reeling after your ex-boyfriend emerged victorious, pride of place on your wall along with the caption 'you are my moon and stars fam lol famalam hon xxxxxxxxx'. Well, you're not alone.
Star Wars isn't the only thing going rogue, it seems, as Facebook decided to chuck a load of old photos up on tons of users' walls randomly today. Some were days old, others weeks, and there was also a sprinkling of years-old pics regurgitated too.
Some have speculated that the misdemeanour could be related to a new version of Facebook's app on iOS. Others have claimed it could have something to do with the Year In Review that has been posted by people who have nothing better to do with their lives.
@facebook I updated the iOS app last night and it has since reposted dozens of old posts like they were new ones all by itself.

We've called out to Mark Zuckerberg for an answer, but he's yet to reply.*

I was going to show you my year in review, but I can't seem to find it anymore, so here's an image of me and Mido instead.
