I'm glad you were able to solve the mystery @Gloria Mitchell.
I don't have many pics on there so I'm not worried...they can have them.
I've never heard of that. Maybe Facebook figures I wouldn't look good in a necklace.
We had a good friend on Facebook who opened a new page and sent me another friend request. It had the same pictures as his older account, and i just assumed that he had lost his password, or just needed to make a new page for some reason.
He wrote to me and asked if we had gotten our free grant yet. It didn’t make much sense to me; but since he ran a food pantry for homeless and poor people, I was not surprised that he was getting some kind of a free grant. What didn’t make sense was why he was asking if we had received our grant yet, because there was no reason that we would qualify for anything like that .
I wrote back, asking for more information, and he said that when he got his free grant, he had seen our name on the list as also being eligible for one, and then he included a link for me to go and sign up for my grant.
At this point, I was getting really suspicious, so i messaged our friend Chester on his old account, and he said that he had not opened a new account and didn’t know anything about any kind of free grant. So I let him know that his account had been copied, and that he should contact Facebook and have it deleted, and I unfriended this person who was the fake account.
I do not know what other reasons someone would steal and account and add your friends, but this is at least one thing that can happen.
After what happened yesterday- I was approved to join a site I had not requested to join. This has happened several times last few years...but with people not groups. Least by dumping FB just one less thing for me to worry about.
Facebook groups can join people who haven't requested to join. I thought there was a way to prevent them from doing so, but I don't see one now. They may have removed that option.
What do you mean? A group can list me as a member even if I didn't want to join???
I think they can invite you to join...vs you askibg them.
Yes, they can. You can then leave the group and I think there is then an option for you to reject any further listings with that group.
Thanks, never heard of that before.
Makes me glad I don't have a Facebook account. Some of my family do and they plaster my picture all over it. They say they have their account set to private and nobody can see them but their friends. Well, that's kinda like having a secret. You tell your best friend and swear them to secrecy. They only tell their sister and swear her to secrecy. She tells her husband and he tells his friend who tells his wife and so on and on. Pretty soon everybody in town knows your secret. You post a picture on Facebook, your friends share it with their friends and pretty soon everybody on the internet has a copy. I have asked them not to post anymore pictures of me.
@Shirley Martin ... One thing that really bugs me on FB...are those who post pictures if those in hospital in a coma or near death. Those people desrve to be left alone in privacy.
If they post my picture when I'm near death, I'm gonna come back and haint them.
As far as I have seen, Facebook does not put you in groups. However, your friends can add you to groups that they think you might be interested in, providing that they are a member of the group.
As an example, I added Robin to some of the oldtime Idaho groups when I joined them, because I knew that she would be interested in those, too.
If she didn’t want to be part of the group, then all she had to do was choose the “leave group”option.
So, probably, one of your friends is in the group that you were added to (unknowingly), @Gloria Mitchell .
