I recently got a suggestion for someone that is a client of mine. I have no problem with the guy, but how could fb know about him? There are no connections in my friend list with him, but he would be in my outlook address book, and I exchange professional emails with him all the time. My work email address is not in fb, and I have never submitted it to search for friends. It's also protected (allegedly) by my vpn, and the company firewalls. To what extent can fb permeate my laptop?

Yeah, Facebook keeps suggesting one of my old professors from 2 years ago and we have NO mutual friends. How do they know I'm associated with him?

I have had similar things. Thankfully I don't put too personal info on FB anymore, even using a fake last name. I really want to know where they find these things out though, it's just plain creepy.

Does your facebook account have your company listed? Also, it may be possible that his facebook is not so tight as yours, and so the connection is being made on his side.

That's a good point, i hadn't thought of that, and it's fairly obvious. My company is listed, but my company is gigantic, so i doubt it made that connection.

When I use to work at Intel, I had Intel listed as my company and it would suggest other "co-workers" to friend. Though really, I don't know how it figures things out, more signs to the end of the world.

what about your location?
If you have your location, and company it might narrow things down that way.

You wonder who is getting suggestions about you? I believe there is some reference to this sort of stuff in Revelations, but it is allegoric of course.

Clearly it's the Fifth Seal of the seven, and Zuckerman is in the midst of fulfilling the requirements. 'And lo unto thee is sent the fifth of seven seals who shall usher in the advent of visions on the tablet that is flat but shines. On the tablet shall be visions of martyrs who die the death of narcissists and ego-centrics, the misunderstood among His flock.'

That's actually happened to me with old fling recently whom I have no other connections with and I wondered the same thing. I assume it's because that person has at some point tried to look you up and just did not friend you.

Either that or FB is doing things like Google which stores massive amounts of personal data.

I can't see how he would be found in personal information in any part of my computer. If he were looking for me on FB that would be a major HMMMMM. I'm okay with that, but really odd.

well to be fair, I sometimes look up random people I don't really know. Like teachers, people that work at braums/sonic/arby's, some people I hear my fiends talk about, people I haven't seen in 5-10 years, etc.

Facebook is just clever like that. I think they take a lot of factors into account with suggested friends.

That happened to me as well- I worked with a person over the phone for a Marketing project, we never met physically and have no mutual friends... She still popped up out of nowhere on my people you may know list.
