Facebook users have been caught out by an apparent ‘glitch’ that reportedly sends an automatic friend request to any profile you click on.
Dozens of social media users have reported being notified about people – even random strangers – accepting friend requests which they insist they didn’t send.
Facebook users have branded the error ‘mortifying’, saying it basically notifies people whoever has been looking at their profile.

Some have questioned whether the ‘glitch’ is part of an upgrade, while others have warned users not to click on anyone’s Facebook profile until the issue is fixed to avoid embarrassment.
One person on Twitter said: “MY FACEBOOK IS ADDING EVERYONE’S PROFILE I CLICK ON. I just wanna be nosey in peace!” And a second tweeted: “Love a stalk, don’t get me wrong, but Facebook adding people as soon as you click on their profile, relax.”
A third person wrote: “Facebook sending friend requests to strangers, anybody ever had this? Weirdly adding people that are ‘friend suggestions’ and anybody’s profile I view. I don’t even press any buttons. Could it be a hack?”
Someone else said: “Facebook is auto adding anyone’s profile you look at at the moment. I’m mortified!” And another tweeted: “Facebook seems to be auto adding friends. My life is embarrassing enough already.”
