Privacy Warning using Facebook on a Network.
First let me say, if anyone else wrote this I’d say they were crazy.
I had a big surprise this morning when I clicked on a Facebook link and saw I had new friends. I was even more surprised when I noticed I wasn’t signed on as myself, but was signed on as Cindi my wife.
Using normal logic I would have thought my wife had used my computer. I knew that couldn’t be true because Cindi hates my computer. My laptop is a ThinkPad x61 with a track-point and doesn’t even have a a mouse touchpad. My laptop hadn’t left my side since last using Facebook and even if it had, she wouldn’t have been able to use it.
We both use the same wireless network but still, that shouldn’t have anything to do with it. This makes no sense to me, and some might think I’m crazy but I feel a need to share it. It really did happen so it can only be a flaw in Facebook or some kind of weird network error.
Do you use Facebook at work on a network? Do you say anything you wouldn’t want you co-workers to see? Even in private messages? Well, Stop. The only reason I started to use Facebook was to write about privacy but I never expected this.
If this has happen to you or if anyone has a better explanation… please comment.
