Facebook Addresses Chirping Sound Issue
  • Published

Some Facebook users have recently encountered a peculiar problem while scrolling through the mobile app: a chirping sound. Now, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has acknowledged the issue.

Technical Error Confirmed

According to Meta’s director of communications, Andy Stone, the chirping sound experienced by users is not intentional but rather “an unfortunate technical error.” Stone’s tweet on Tuesday assured users that the company is actively working to resolve the issue.

Resolution Process

While the exact cause of the technical error remains unclear, Meta has provided a solution for affected users. By navigating to the Facebook app’s settings, users can disable sounds associated with the app. This can be achieved by accessing Settings & Privacy, selecting Settings, proceeding to Media, and toggling off Sounds under In-App Sounds.

Relatively Benign Glitch

Despite its annoyance, the chirping sound glitch appears to be relatively harmless compared to previous technical mishaps on the platform. In the past, Facebook updates have inadvertently led to embarrassing situations, such as sending friend requests to profiles users were merely viewing, exposing lurkers. Additionally, a software bug in 2022 unintentionally amplified misinformation on the platform instead of mitigating its spread.

As Meta works diligently to address the chirping sound issue, users can take comfort in the fact that the company is responsive to user feedback and committed to resolving technical issues promptly.
