Facebook on iPhone



  • When I'm scrolling through facebook and in particularly a set of photos that someone has post, it seems to flash at each pic as if my phone is taking the pic for storage.

    Does anyone know what I mean by the above and how do you stop it?

    I'm worried about haveing an epilectic fit as it is fuggin annoying.



  • @Hooroo sounds dodgy as...so you mean it is taking like a normal photo you would with the flash??

    you added any apps recently or have you got anti-virus?



  • No,

    Just a crap way that i have explained it. it seems to do the screenshot type of pic (no actual flash)

    Prolly can't explain what I am seeing.

    Someone will know what I mean though



  • It's a new iPhone feature where it randomly takes photos of you and automatically uploads them to Facebook.



  • @Hooroo I think I know what you mean as I have an extension on chrome on my laptop that creates a file of most pics and videos you look at, so you can then click a button and download them if you want to.

    But you have an iPhone anyway don't you, so I have no idea 🙂



  • I think what @Hooroo means when he says it flashes is that it flashes as if it is taking a screenshot rather than an actual picture.

    There are some Apple guru's on here aren't there? I've only ever been Android so can only add annoying comments that don't help.



  • That's it @No-Quarter

    Thanks for explaining what I couldn't



  • @Hooroo can you see the pics in your gallery as well?



  • No, it isn't actually taking a pic it is just a motion that resembles taking a screenshot.



  • @Hooroo as above, DODGY AS!

    Maybe your True love installed an app to keep an eye on what you up to 😉



  • @taniwharugby She paid me to hack it. Some pretty interesting pictures and messages on there.

    I probably wouldn't have gone with the username "carlosdanger_nz" though.

    Just checked mine, it's not doing that. Have you tried deleting the app and re-installing it?

    Nah, it happened a year or so ago and I managed to find the setting but it has just come back in latest upgrade

    It's the worst app for burying settings.



  • Can you hold your credit card face out the next time your using the app?
    Cheers.



  • It's not happening on my android phone.



  • Thanks @Bones that should clear it up for me.



  • IT's called 'blinking' apparently



  • @Hooroo if you'd said that at the beginning! 🙂
