Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Consider the following use case

  1. I have facebook.stackoverflow.com open
  2. I erroneously think its vanilla stackoverflow since they look identical and proceed to ask a regular (non fb) programming question
  3. I fill out the form and submit a beautifully written question, but not for anything related to facebook.

Does anything bad happen? Will I get yelled at for not tagging it as a facebook question? Or will it transfer to vanilla stackoverflow? Or will it get automatically tagged "facebook" even though it may have nothing to do with fb? I can't be the only one confused by this.

I could of course try it, but don't want to pollute stackoverflow with nonsense and can't think of a reasonable programming question right at the moment.

You can't post a question to Facebook Stack Overflow without a Facebook related tag, we do not automatically add one.

If you look at the Ask a Question page, you'll see that the placeholder text for the "Tags" box says:

must include at least one tag relating to facebook
