Facebook has confirmed it is working to fix an issue with its main feed after many users reported seeing waves of posts unrelated to their interests.

On Wednesday morning, Facebook users around the world began reporting what some deemed “spam” messages appearing on their feeds, often posts from random users being directed at celebrities or famous accounts on the platform.
