I have been a member of the social network for a couple of years now. Never been much of a fan, but my girlfriend is… and it does come in handy from time to time.
Today, Facebook suggested a friend for me – which I have absolutely no affiliation with on Facebook. We have no common friends, and no friends of friends or the like. Why and how on earth does Facebook try to “pair” us up?
The reason for this rant, is that I actually know this person! The person lives in another country, but I have actually played bridge with her. But we do not have any other connection. So my question is : does Facebook have access to my Gmail contacts? That does not make sense either, because I use a different email account on Facebook.
Can someone please tell my how this has happened?
