Facebook weirdness


Recommended Posts

I rarely use facebook and I've only got three friends, none of whom have anything to do with Thailand or the PA board, so I was freaked when Laamok's face popped up with his real name as a friend suggestion - I've met him a couple of times briefly, and recognised his photo from the board.


The only possible link I can think of is the mail in my inbox from the PA board - can facebook read it without me asking it to? It's weird and creepy.

I have been told that facebook checks your inbox and lots of other stuff when you sign up and give permission.


But this time, it was my fault. I made a Pattaya Addicts group and invited a block of members to join it, however for some reason its invited people to my profile opposed to the group.


Its not a good idea for us to all link up our profiles IMO, but I am happy to accept whoever wants it.


I use facebook for 10 minutes once a week to check PM's I can't stand the website or what its about!

I think this is the answer - Laamok let facebook search his gmail contacts for possible friends, but he is then suggested as a friend even to those he doesn't add himself. Nice to know that you are likely to be suggested as s friend to anyone in your contacts list, without asking or being informed. Facebook is creepy.

I just joined the group, but i was little confused about the group category... Geography - cities... dont you think "Common interest" would be more apropriate... :001_Thank_You5:
