    Several individuals and many businesses from the Swedish east coast island of Gotland now appear to be living in Norway. At least that’s what their Facebook is showing.

    By some miracle or due to an unfortunate technical bug, several individuals and many businesses from the Swedish east coast island of Gotland now appear to be living in Norway. At least that’s what their Facebook is showing.

    According to Facebook, many Gotlanders have sneakily infiltrated the Norwegian county of Hedmark, just east of Oslo.

    A Swedish Facebook spokesman, Mandarva Stenborg, was perplexed when the Gotland Allehanda newspaper approached about the bug. "We will investigate this and come back," she told the newspaper.

    However, the alleged virus may have financial implications for some Gotland businesses, such as the Tofta Viking Village and local hotels.

    "Gotland companies pay to reach people through Facebook," said Julia Bendelin, who works for an advertising agency that markets the brand Gotland. "It is clear that we should not be in Norway."
