I’ve always known that Facebook is a law unto itself, what with the publishing of personal details without asking, allowing use of images without asking, and various other steps it has taken without our permission.
Recently I found something I had never known before. I decided to set up a group on Facebook and set about ‘inviting’ people to join my group – at least that’s what I thought I was doing. In fact it turns out that I was not inviting people to join, Facebook was adding them automatically to the group when I suggested names!
I was horrified and quickly messaged everyone to say I was sorry they had been added without their consent. I really thought I was sending an invitation! One of the easiest ways to upset our loyal readers is to add them to anything without asking.
Facebook seriously has no manners!
P.S. If you want to joing the group I set up it’s all about blogging and helping each other to blog more effectively. You can find the group here:
