Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

A couple of times today I've noticed the Facebook mini-site everybody loves is showing all Stack Overflow questions, not just Facebook related questions. This occurs on the new question list. Here are a couple of screenshots of examples (it happened to be both logged in and not logged in):

It's probably linked to the Facebook IPO. The Facebook, it is unstable. – Mat May 18 '12 at 16:40
I thought at first they had listened to us but then I refreshed and it was working again. Then I refreshed and it wasn't. – bkaid May 18 '12 at 16:44
When was this? It might be related to the issue reported recently where the "newest" tab was out by a day. Something about caching: – Flexo May 18 '12 at 16:54
Perhaps on a fresh page load it gets only FB questions, but the ajaxy new question loader notification thingerizer loads all new SO questions? – Matthew Read May 18 '12 at 16:57
Note that the "Featured" tab shows the number of the mini site though. – Arjan May 18 '12 at 16:59
@awoodland about 2 minutes before I posted. – bkaid May 18 '12 at 16:59
I'm seeing it right now, does indeed "feel" like what @awoodland links to. (Editing C++ questions via facebook.SO just feels dirty, I'm out of there.) – Mat May 18 '12 at 17:01
Aww, I thought this was a new feature where they dump all the bad questions onto the Facebook site. There are already so many terrible questions there, I'm surprised anyone noticed. – Cody Gray May 19 '12 at 0:15

Sigh... Me again. I've been deploying some experimental code changes to the way our tags are handled... I guess something in sub-sites wasn't applying the sub-site completely. I've switched back to the stable version for now.
