Duplicate stories in Facebook News Feed

February 1, 2012

I spend a way too much time on facebook. Its virtually open all the time on a dedicated chrome / firefox tab. Lolz.

Here is the snapshot of an update from a friend that was duplicated. Posts like this take a lot of visible space on the feed space. While the more important ones get pushed down.

Duplicate Feed items resulting from LIKING and SHARING the same item.

If that is happening all the time I must say it would annoy a lot of people. It is very probable that someone sharing a feed item will like it too. In that case pushing both the action to our news feeds is not a smart thing to do.

I will be reporting this to Facebook – with a hope they fix it ASAP.

I have started a new project called the Indic Dictionary. This will cover popular household words in India and what they are called in various languages. Eventually, I will make this an easy to use app where where people can easily find something like “hing in English” or “Tea Tree Oil in Hindi” or “carrom seeds in Urdu”.
