creepy facebook suggests my brother to my partner as a friend in the "people you may know" category...

 

why is it creepy ?

- they don't know each other

- my brother doesn't even know my partner's name

- i am NOT on facebook

- they have no friends in common, they don't even live in the same country, and have a 10 year difference

- i've realised the only place where they are "together" is: both of them are among my whatsapp contacts

- facebook owns whatsapp

 

i hate creepy facebook !

I'm sure Facebook uses your GPS location and proximity to other people. When making friend suggestions.

They also brainwash users into thinking every other forum* etc they visit is an extension of facebook and that the users there will be interested in the minutia of their lives.

 

* for every other forum read giffgaff. Smiley Tongue

Odd that your brother and your partner should be introduced to each other by facebook and not yourself Smiley Wink
