    I’ve read quite a lot about this recently and i find it really irritating. It’s almost like an invasion of privacy but then you choose to make your details public so it can’t be. Facebook seemed to have addressed the problem by only allowing confirmed friends to view each others profiles.

    Thanks for the comment,
    Lindsey
