Facebook ‘likes’ automatically added without user-clicks

Facebook “likes” are being added to webpages even if a user has not clicked a like button, or even visited the page in question, the company has admitted. A US security researcher found that simply sending a web address to a friend using Facebook’s private messaging function would add two likes to that page. Leaving a comment on a story within Facebook also adds to the tally. The site told the BBC that no private information had been exposed. The revelations coincided with the news that the network has surpassed one billion monthly active monthly users.
