Facebook keeps making mistakes that share your info - and this time it's with people you've explicitly blocked.
Between May 29 and June 5, more than 800,000 Facebook users were affected by a bug that unblocked people they had previously made a decision to block.
Facebook says the bug didn't re-add friends who you've unfriended, and the vast majority (83 percent) of people affected by the bug only had a single person temporarily unblocked.

Dude, Dell is going public again
Dell said it will list its Class C shares on the New York Stock Exchange following the completion of the deal. Billionaire Carl Icahn is deciding whether to challenge Michael Dell in VMware, sources told The Post.
The bug doesn't appear to have been active for long in the grand scheme of things, but it's yet another example a breach of trust between Facebook and its users.
"We know that the ability to block someone is important", Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan said in a blog post. It suggests that users check their blocked lists, and reassures them that the issue has now been resolved.
Facebook's blocking feature enables users to restrict certain individuals from viewing anything on their timeline, tagging them in any post, or starting conversations with them on the Messenger app. By Facebook's own admission: "There are many reasons why people block another person on Facebook". With this bug, some purportedly blocked users could have seen posts that were shared with a wide audience and been able to contact the person who blocked them via Messenger.
"Their relationship may have changed or they may want to take a break from someone posting content they find annoying". People are once again blocked, but Facebook will add an alert to the accounts of those affected, asking them to double-check their blocked lists.
