When SO and I first started dating we went to karaoke a lot. He knew a lot of people at the place we went to, including an older woman (50-60ish) and her husband. They’re very friendly people so when she friend-requested me on Facebook, I accepted.
Well, turns out she’s not so nice — or rather, it’s more like we have very differing opinions on certain subjects. She would make rude statuses towards certain groups of people, etc. I unsubscribed from her updates so I didn’t have to see her bigotry on my feed. And SO and I haven’t been to karaoke in a while now, so I actually haven’t even talked to or seen her for a couple months.
Anyway, I logged onto facebook yesterday and she had gone through my photos and tagged herself in all the pics of me and my SO — all the romantic pics, I should say. Pics of us hugging or kissing or just generally looking lovey-dovey. It *really* creeped me out. She’s not even in the pictures to begin with, and they’re rather emotionally intimate photos. I felt sort of violated, actually.
I went through and untagged her from all of them. I’m wondering if I should say something to her about it, though. I mean, that’s a weird thing to do, am I right? What would you all do?

LOL very weird… I think that calls for a delete

I would unfriend and block her. If you ever bump into her again and she asks, I would just say you were having security issues and either got off Facebook altogether, or you deleted everyone except family 😉 If you block her she’ll never know that you’re still on there unless she asks someone else you know.

On a side note, my best friend’s Mother-In-Law tags herself in photos of her and Darling Husband because she likes the photos. She thinks she’s saving them for later like a bookmark. Maybe she flips through them in the “photos of you” section or something?! My best friend asked her to stop, but she still does it, LOL!

Awkward! I would unfriend immeadiately.

I would just ask her why she did it. Depending on her answer, take action

I know some older people who do this because they want to be able to see them later– so they can go through their “photos of me” as a sort of album of all their favorite photos of their friends?
That said, it’s real creepy if she’s doing it to your romantic photos and I’d untag them all, too.

@bakerella: That’s a good point — sort of bookmarking the photo. Still, it freaks me out to think of this woman randomly flipping through photos of me and my guy. I can see why a Mother-In-Law would do it, though!

I could see what Bakerella mentioned being a plausible explination. I know a lot of the “older” crowd doesn’t really understand the ins and outs of Facebook (to this day, my mom still types in google’s address and searches “log into my facebook” to access her FB account) – I’d chalk it up to a misunderstanding of the technology vs. something icky.
Still, that is weird and if you dislike her updates enough to hide her then it’d probably be best to remove her completely.

@MissCalifornia: My dad thinks that my personal Facebook page is the Facebook homepage. He was logged out one time and he called me to have me teach him how to log-in, and then when he saw his newsfeed he didn’t know what it was and kept asking me how to get to the homepage… turns out he just has mine bookmarked (only child over here) so he can see my pictures and keep up with my life.
