Like many over the age of 30, I’m spending less and less time on Facebook these days. Twitter and FriendFeed are more my social networking style.
The other day, Eric got an email that Seth Godin has confirmed his Friend request on Facebook. It was the real Seth Godin’s Facebook profile. Thing is, Eric has spent maybe a grand total of 5 minutes on Facebook and never visited Godin’s profile, much less asked for his hand in friendship.
This morning I got a friend request:
Um, sure…after Erin Brokovich and I had lunch last week and discussed her next lawsuit we said, “let’s friend each other!”
“Erin” has 12 Friends…and none of them are Julia Roberts. Not to mention the fact that there’s no activity in the feed.
It’s the first time anyone has tried to friend me from what appears to be a fake profile. Does this happen often?
