I'm reposting the steps about how to solve the Facebook notification glitch that has been plaguing people since last Sunday. (Sans the blog link, since that may have have impinged on the discussion guidelines. Sorry, btw.) If you're having weird notifications about and from people you don't know then follow these steps to make your Facebook secure: 1. On your Facebook, click on 'Account Settings', then click 'Account Activity'. 2. If you have the problem then it means that you'll be seeing other users on your 'Account Activity'. On your 'Also Active' tab, you'll be seeing details about browsers and locations that you are not familiar with. 3. Click 'End' for each session on the 'Also Active' tab. This will stop the notifications. 4. After following these steps, check the boxes for 'Secure Browsing' and 'Login Notifications'. This will secure your Facebook account and will prevent the problem from happening again. 5. Change your passwords just to be safe. This solution had already worked for a lot of people already so I can vouch for its usefulness.

Did anybody in the Philippines had this too? I haven't experienced the glitch you're talking about. Maybe it just affects some people.

Good thing if you don't have this problem. May I ask, are you on SKY Cable? That's another angle we're trying to investigate because most of the people hollering about this error are on this ISP. You can browse Technoodling, the tech site for Filipinos to find out more about it. I recommend though that you should just secure your Facebook settings just in case. It doesn't hurt to have an added protection on our accounts, right?

Facebook settings might be a thing too. I happen to have my settings customized so that my email won't be flooded by facebook notifications and I limited the full view of my profile just to the friends of my friends which mostly are my friends also. About the internet provider, nope I don't use Sky Cable. I only use PLDT and Sun Wireless Broadband. That would be a con for Sky Cable if it is real and it might affect the number of their subscribers.

The account security settings I'm talking about here are different though, because it's an option to use HTTPS instead of the usual HTTP. In a nutshell, that makes accessing our FB accounts secure. The login notifications are also nifty in that it sends updates every time a device other than your computer is accessing your account.
