Does Sally really need their help?
I logged into Facebook a few minutes ago and was reading through my home page. Something down the right hand side of the page caught my eye.... under the 'suggestions' tab. It says,"Sally Smith. She has only 18 friends on Facebook. Suggest friends for her."
Am I the only one that finds that incredibly wrong? Sally (not the real name of course) is some one who uses Facebook for one reason, to see pictures of her Granddaughter. She has a few (17 apparently) other friends that she's picked up here and there but she's obviously not the usual obsessed patron. Does it seem right that Facebook is recruiting friends for her? Why does the suggestion feel like it's saying Facebook feels sorry for her? It makes me feel strange.
Maybe it's just me.
