Facebook Fixes Bug That Blocked Logged-Out Users From Seeing Pages’ Content

UPDATED: Sister blog Inside Facebook reported that Facebook fixed a bug that had been blocking Web surfers who were not logged in to Facebook and tried to access pages on the social network from seeing content on those pages, and sent them to the news feed once they input their credentials, rather than to the pages they were attempting to visit.

As for user profiles, logged-out Web surfers had still been able to see publicly available data, but they could not view recent and past posts, or activity on timeline via Facebook and applications, until they logged in, according to Inside Facebook.

Readers: How often do you actually log out of Facebook and log back in if you are not using a public device to access the social network?
