This is a non-story. If you've ever sent a link via Google Chat you would have witnessed the same behavior-before the link is delivered it will often be loaded by a google crawler who will check it for malicious content. I'm sure Facebook does the same thing.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
