    I'm starting to think it isn't a bot, but rather a failed FB event. They were giving multiple confirmations of the same notification, each with a different person's photo. this was a boosted post, so maybe the Almighty Algorithms had a bad day?  Just too weird.

    ​I don't think it's a bot attack. I'm seeing similar - I assumed Facebook is trying to update its notifications format and hasn't worked out the kinks yet.

    Thanks, Ariana!  I finally came to that conclusion as well, but it's continuing today, so annoying. Thanks!
