Facebook blames a 'bug' for keeping copies of users' seemingly deleted private videos

Facebook has claimed a 'bug' caused the platform to save copies of videos that had been deleted by its users.

The social network was recently caught storing videos that users had recorded but never posted on the platform.

Facebook today apologised for the issue and promised that it would permanently delete the video content in question.

It also confirmed the deleted content was never publicly shared, although it remains unclear whether Facebook used the footage in any other way

The apology comes as Facebook battles a privacy scandal over the harvesting of personal data on 50 million users by political firm linked to Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.  Read more at Daily Mail.com
