“Facebook says a software bug made some private posts public for as many as 14 million users over several days in May,” wrote The Associated Press for CBC News on June 7, 2018.

The Associated Press continued, “The problem, which Facebook says it has fixed, is the latest privacy scandal for the world’s largest social media company. On Thursday, the company said the bug automatically suggested that users make new posts public, even if they had previously restricted to “friends only” or another private setting. If users did not notice the new default suggestion, they unwittingly sent their post to a broader audience than they had intended.

Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer, said the bug did not affect past posts. She added that Facebook is notifying users who posted publicly during the time the bug was active to review their posts.”

    I was diagnosed with Lyme disease 5 years ago and was taking Antibiotics and Nonsteroidal anti-Inflammatory drug which seemed to help. However, I still suffer from some of the symptoms. My symptoms have always been chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even neurological problems in controlling hand and leg movements. I am a 54 year old female. the Antibiotics wasn’t really working and I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, so this year our family doctor started me on Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease Herbal mixture, We ordered their Lyme disease herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using herbs, my symptoms totally declined over a 8 weeks use of the Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease herbal mixture.
