What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

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: meta.stackexchange.com/a/132944/153020 –  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.
