AT&T has admitted that several of its customers who attempted to log into Facebook were mistakenly redirected into other users' accounts. AT&T spokesman Michael Coe told the Associated Press that a network problem was behind some of the misdirected Facebook logins, and that only a small number of customers were affected. In a separate case, other users were also directed to the Facebook pages of other users due to flawed cookies. The cookies weren't properly recognizing the phone and failed to associate them with the right users' account. AT&T is still investigating how the cookies were incorrectly routed.
