Facebook glitch reveals Greta Thunberg's father posting as teenage climate activist
A Thursday evening software update at Facebook accidentally allowed anyone to view exactly who is posting under the accounts of public figures, businesses and other entities, according to Wired.
“We quickly fixed an issue where someone could see who edited or published a post on behalf of a Page when looking at its edit history,” according to a Facebook statement. “We are grateful to the security researcher who alerted us to this issue.”

It's interesting that the Wired article doesn't show that this bug allowed people to see that Greta's dad runs her Facebook page and posts to it almost exclusively.— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) January 12, 2020
Which isn't a surprise... But yeah, that detail has news value. https://t.co/nPuYaxFwAC
