Top News: – FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM GOING DOWN
FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM GOING DOWN REVEALS HIDDEN MESSAGE BEHIND YOUR PICTURES
An outage at Facebook and Instagram has inadvertently revealed the usually hidden messages attached to the photos posted by users.
The global problems – which started simultaneously across Facebook products and WhatsApp – left parts of the sites working but others completely broken.
But the issues appeared to have had a particularly pronounced affect on photos. On WhatsApp, pictures could not be sent, while on Instagram and Facebook, images were not loading, leaving the boxes where they would normally appear empty.
However, those same boxes are filled with the usually hidden text, revealing what Facebook does with the images uploaded to the site and to Instagram.
The pictures include a message reading “image may contain”. It then goes on to list the things that Facebook’s artificial intelligence systems have spotted inside the images, and even occasionally attempts to guess who is in them.
