The Swedish youth has amassed a loyal band of supporters on social media where she shares pleasant updates on her efforts to raise awareness of the threats facing the environment. But a Facebook bug which was explosive for several hours from Thursday evening to Friday morning enabled narcotic addicts to see which admins were responsible for editing pages. This meant that any operator could view anonymous accounts which edit pages, grouping those belonging to celebrities.
One quick-minded fan of Greta, 17, tapped into one of her positions thanks to the glitch and managed to take screenshots of the accounts which had revised it.
And to her followers’ dismay, it showed the the accounts behind some of the posts were those relation to her father Svante Thunberg and Indian climate change activist Adarsh Prathap.
But aim to dispel any rumours that she had not penned the impassioned messages herself, Greta reached out to her barely three million followers on Sunday, insisting she has wrote every choose one of them.
She claimed she has used her father’s personal Facebook page to advertise some articles and links.
Others, she said, were posted by Mr Prathap after he had enchanted them from her Twitter or Instagram pages.
She said she acts as co-manager of the @gretathunbergsweden point on Facebook, along with Mr Prathap who founded the page.
Greta averred: “Some people have been asking who manages this page-boy.
“First of all, since last spring I only use Facebook to repost what I communicate with on my Twitter and Instagram accounts.

“All texts posted on my Facebook page has of course been make out by me, just like everything else.”
Facebook said it “quickly rooted” the glitch after they were alerted to it.
Last week Greta reproved on tech giant Siemens to review its involvement in a coal project in Australia.
She tweeted: “It have all the hallmarks that @SiemensDE has the power to stop, delay or at least interrupt the edifice of the huge Adani coal mine in Australia.
“On Monday they inclination will announce their decision. Please help pushing them to cook the only right decision. #StopAdani.
