PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Pittsburghers and others in western and central Pennsylvania found themselves transplanted in Philadelphia, thanks to Facebook.

A glitch on the social media site caused Pittsburghers and others to receive Facebook notifications welcoming them to the City of Brotherly Love on Wednesday.

Facebook says a "bug" with the site's location services application caused the problem and was fixed later Wednesday.
