    Okay, so my photos are set to be seen (with a few exceptions) by Friends only. So how did a friend of a friend manage to like two of my photos? I've been back through my settings and everything is as it should be.

    Grrr.

    Did you tag your friend in the photos? I'm noticing that I'm seeing a lot of photos lately whereby I'm *not* friends with the person who's album they are in; however, I am friends with the person tagged. In that case, I can only see the pictures that are tagged with my friend, not all the photos in that album. I'm not sure what settings would control this.

    The friend is not tagged in the photo; I thought maybe that's what it was as well.

    I haven't done that yet, but I wonder about people who start chats...but have nothing to say. I refuse to carry a conversation which someone else starts. So it often dies an awkward death!

    Sometimes when I have to sign up for something which requires a city and a postal code, I'll use Beverly Hills as the city because then I don't have to look up what the postal code is.

    Facebook announces that I have uploaded photos and I don't know how to change the settings so it will stop. Sometimes people comment on the photos, but I don't remember if the comments originate from Friends or friends of Friends.

    It's been a long time since I have uploaded photos, and photos of my family do not appear on my Facebook. Paybacks and all that....

    With the new changes on FB, look at your privacy and security settings again and make sure they are the way you want. PeterG-block yourself from chat, or I'll bug you every day.
    You can make sure that your pics are not visable if you like.
    The changes are annoying, but managable.

    Did the friend "Share" your photo on her own wall? That would allow her friends to see it.

    I have a question about tagging of photos. I thought tagging was about when there is a group photo on someone else's page, and you are in that photo. You tag yourself in that photo so that it appears on your own facebook page.

    My question is about people who tag photos of mine in which no one appears (it's a scenic shot, or a picture at an event, etc.). Why do people tag themselves in pictures like this? And sometimes people tag an item in a photo in which I appear. I don't get this, it seems strange to me. Any explanations?

    I think sometimes people do that when they want to make sure you see the photo for some reason. My mom does that to me, tagging me in pictures of my cousin's kids and stuff. Yeah, I have no kids. Whatever.

    If I want to make sure someone sees a particular photo (like when I got a picture of my friend's cat totally stoned on 'nip), I tag them so they get notified.

    Me again. So my news feed is a mess, and I can't figure out how to see the most recent stuff. It's just giving me the "top" stories. Help!

    ^^^

    In the same situation as PL, I think it's the new facebook changes though. Extremely annoying.

    I know. I've managed to get rid of some crap it considered a "top" story, but I liked the feature where I could just see the most recent status updates. I have no idea why they would get rid of that.....

    This is EXACTLY why I closed my account - these exact same reasons. And before I did, I made a point of letting everyone know this.

    And some sites these days won't allow you to register unless you use your Facebook account. I don't think that is a good idea at all - folks tend to like the anonymity of the Internet, and Facebook all but ruins that.

    This new Facebook is a mess! Who are they to "decide" what my "top stories" are? And the feed keeps jumping up to the top of the page....maybe that's just a temporary glitch, but I sure don't like it. I use Facebook a lot for my work with the ballet, and all our little dancers are on it, and I have to keep tabs on them to make sure they aren't using the f word and etc on it. Seriously! It is a good marketing tool for selling tickets and keeping up interest.

    I do not like this new format.

    I've always been a facebook defender and I think it's a great tool for keeping touch with people, but these new changes are getting to be a bit much. The window where you actually see your profile is now even narrower due to that newsfeed sidebar. There's also some bug going on with the photos. I tried to add photos to the page of an event I attended and the only way was to add them one by one - annoying! I tagged myself in them but those photos don't show up among the tagged photos on my profile or in the photo strip above the profile. No idea why. Why do they need to make changes every two months????
