Facebook displays [object Object] for a friend request

Posted by TechGeek on July 25, 2011

Facebook is very popular social networking sites with millions of users. Facebook allows you to connect any of your known friends and family on the network where you can share anything from messages to video with them. Facebook is very keen to block unknown requests if you really don’t know that person. Today, I just come across small bug related to programming on their network. Here is what the bug looks,

request1 Facebook displays [object Object] for a friend request

Look at the image above, Facebook displays a message box for your friend request. Look at the start of the message before the line “Are you sure you know this person?” It looks like Facebook fails to display proper string and display the string as [object Object].

This may be a small bug but it looks weird when you have it on a popular website. Do you agree?
