Today I was browsing Facebook when suddenly I got a superuser request popup. Could anyone explain why Facebook needs SU permissions?

Same happened to me too.
Started yesterday afternoon.
Facebook last updated 1 day ago, so it must have to do something with new version.

Happening to me as well. It looks like it is triggered by trying to open a linked post in newsfeed.
