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!
