What I Learned About Myself Today Via Facebook

As a user of Facebook for primarily blogging, I rarely ever check out my own profile.  If I do get on Facebook for fun it's to read what's others have been posting, find out what new events are coming up in the mom blog world, or to play a game or two.  Other than that I am usually posting my own blog content through the share buttons on my blog.  

Today I was actually on my Facebook profile and got a little pop up about needing to review some new content and tags.  Upon clicking what Facebook felt I needed to review, I came upon some interesting details about my life I somehow missed.  Apparently one of my Facebook friends (which is a blog account so I'm talking 95% fellow mom bloggers) has listed me as a family member of hers.  Huh?  That's what I said!  Another friend claims we have worked together at an organic clothing store.  Double huh?  And finally, I found out another friend has listed me as living in Pennsylvania.  I've never even visited there, let alone lived there.  

Has this happened to anyone else?  I'm really confused I guess.  My profile is clearly a blogger profile and is attached to my blog name, etc.  Why would basically a "stranger" put you down as a family member, a past co-worker, or claim to know which state you live in (which isn't even close to where I live by the way)!  I don't use the word stranger to be rude.  I say that because I have actually never had one conversation or hello with these women on Facebook so far.  How would you take this?  I don't think I plan on confronting them or anything because I don't even know how you would approach this kind of thing.  I'm almost having to chuckle because I can't imagine tagging false details about anyone on Facebook.  Isn't is strange?  I guess Facebook has taught me some things I didn't even know about myself today.  Go figure!

  1. I canceled Facebook along time ago. But everyone is telling me that I need to get one for my blog. But I got rid of it because I got so tired of so many high school people that were in the 30s and 40s. Plus because of some of the things you listed above. I really wish google + would of taken off more.
