Imagine getting a notification from Messenger or the Facebook webpage on the desktop, but when you look at the message, it was sent two, three, even four years ago. That is what some Facebook users are reporting. There is this one guy who got a ‘new’ message from his partner who had passed one year ago.
No doubt this ‘new’ messages from the past are sending users on an emotional roller coaster, especially if the sender is someone they had since fallen apart with or passed away. Facebook has since come out to acknowledge the problem as being caused by a bug in their system.
I am not sure what is happening with Facebook and old messages popping up as new ones, but it gets really ridiculous being confronted with some of the chats from couple of years ago.
