Facebook accidentally makes plane reaction emoji available to Android users

One new Facebook reaction emoji wasn’t supposed to go live. But it was spotted by some eagle-eyed Android users before the social network could take it down. Among the list of available reactions on the app, a cute little airplane emoji showed up. A lot of people assumed this was a feature Facebook was testing or getting ready to launch. (Although, we question what an airplane emoji could even mean.) Facebook was quick to dispel the news. Apparently, it was part of an employee hackathon and it wasn’t meant to go live. A Facebook spokesperson said, “This was created as part of an employee hackathon and wasn’t cleared for takeoff. Our apologies.”

Facebook and Rockstar offer ‘GTA Online’ rewards when you watch livestreams

Aside from releasing the Grand Theft Auto Online After Hours update, Rockstar has one more trick up its sleeves to entice its gamers to watch Facebook livestreams. The game developer and social network are giving away free GTA Online currency if you tune in to certain broadcasts. To get these credits, you’ll need to link your Rockstar Games Social Club account to your Facebook account. The first official stream where you can earn currency is on July 27th, which is when Rockstar and Facebook gaming “all-star friends” will mark the launch of After Hours. There will be a series of broadcasts running through mid-August, where these Facebook streamers will be offering perks on their respective channels. You can check this link for any announcements.

Facebook shuts down three underutilized apps

It’s time to say goodbye to Hello, Moves, and tbh. These three Facebook apps are being shut down because of the lack of enough user interest to keep them going and the company doesn’t want to “spread ourselves too thin” with underutilized apps. Facebook said they will also be deleting user data for all three apps within 90 days.

Fitness tracking app Moves was bought by Facebook back in 2014 but raised privacy concerns because of how the app tracked daily activities. A year later, Facebook introduced Hello, a mobile app the displayed information about incoming phone calls even if the caller’s number isn’t saved on your phone. And then last year, Facebook acquired tbh, which let its users compliment each other by sending anonymous quizzes.

Facebook quiz app may have leaked personal data of 120 million users

While the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal isn’t that far in our past, we knew it was going to unearth a lot of skeletons in Facebook’s closet. The latest one is a Facebook quiz app that may have leaked personal data of around 120 million users who’ve answered the quizzes. Security researcher who goes by the username Inti De Ceukelaire discovered the leak by taking part in Facebook’s data abuse bounty program launched in April 10. One of the third-party apps he looked through was from NameTests.com and there he discovered that the site exposed Facebook users’ data to “any third-party that requested it.” He found that the app exposed user information through javascript, which could easily share files between sites as part of its basic functions.

The site has possibly leaked information since the end of 2016 and De Ceukelaire reported it to Facebook by April 22. Unfortunately, Facebook’s response wasn’t as speedy as the fix only came around the end of June. According to NameTests’ parent company, Social Sweethearts, they have investigated the issue but no user data has been compromised and they are working on measures to avoid these risks from happening in the future.
