Facebook to reimburse some advertisers after discovering bug

Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it would refund some advertisers after finding a bug that wrongly attributed video carousel ad clicks as clicks to the advertisers’ websites.

When users tried to expand and watch the video carousel on the mobile web browser, the bug inadvertently directed the click to the advertiser’s website, leading to incorrect billing, the company said in a blogpost on Tuesday.

The impact from a billing perspective was 0.04 percent of ad impressions, Facebook said.
