Facebook just "suggested" I become friends with a oooold friend of mine - and we have NO friends in common on facebook!! HOW DID THEY KNOW I KNEW HIM???

I'm freaked out! How on earth do they know I know this guys when he hasn't contacted me, I haven't contacted him - and we have no mutual friends???

  • Do you have his email address as a contact in the email you used to set up your facebook account? Because they can suggest friends based on say your Gmail or Hotmail contacts.

  • That happened to me too with a former acquaintance. No schools, home town, current city, friends... nothing in common on our profiles. And I can't imagine this guy was looking for me. I doubt he even knew my last name. I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one it's happened to.
