So I was bored and signed up on Facebook, and it's really odd the "suggested friends" it's giving me. I put in nothing more than my name, birth date, and email address, and it's matching me with people I went to highschool with, people I played EverQuest with (wtf?) and even people who post on the forums here (Durin and Ravage! that I recognized ...double wtf?). It's pretty ridiculous the amount of information it puts together based on how little I put in ;p

What kind of e-stalker shit is going on here?

Here's the profile, complete (or incomplete) with the profile I haven't even filled out lol

I asked one of the people, I guess it turns out that if you're on someone's friends list on an instant messenger program, it can get the information from there. Someone found me via MSN messenger, which I haven't even logged into in years heh

I've considered cancelling my facebook... its mostly just farmville and fishtankville or whatever. I don't really reconnect with people very often any more since i've become a shutin because due to the accident. I like it just because its a lot easier to plan get togethers. You send invites and instead of keeping track of who's coming and who's not facebook will do it automatically when people respond.
