I’m just curious if anyone has ever been outted in real life by someone who recognized them on the bee?
I don’t know if any of my friends are on here. I use the same screen name on here as I do everywhere else and it goes back to 8th grade – no idea if anyone remembers that though…
I have posted FH’s real name (and my first) once when I posted our STD options for opinions. My ring is all over the place here too – it’s not THAT unique though.
If you have been outted did you care?

No one has ever figured out who I am on here and I’m not that careful. I’ve never used FH’s name, only my first name, and I’ve made posts with pretty specific issues. I only knew one person IRL who used the Bee, and she’s not on the website anymore.

@MsGinkgo: I used my name as my username (like I always do), so I clearly don’t care. lol

If you put identifying information on here, including profile pictures and name , it is very possible. Post accordingly. And if you post photos of others without their permission, that is breach of their privacy, IMO.

Nope! Most of my friends aren’t engaged though

That’s actually the reason I switched my profile picture today. But I don’t think anyone I know is on here… because no one I really know if planning a wedding!

@weddingmaven: I’ve never posted anything about someone else that I wouldn’t want them to read. I’m just curious. I’ve also never posted pics of anyone (myself included) on the bee. I’m not sure if I want to be THAT forthcoming about who i ‘really’ am – but if someone figures it out I don’t think I’d care!

I’d say I am pretty careful. Anything that I need to ask that I am afraid has identifying info in it (or I really would hate for a particular person to see), I be sure to post anonymously. I just don’t want friends/family ruining this great anonymous outlet for me 🙂 And this username of mine is very random, so I have a hard time thinking someone could figure it out anyways. I even keep it secret that I look at this website (FI knows, and possibly my roommate).

I know people IRL/Facebook that are also on the Bee 🙂

No, not YET. I have several friends who are recently engaged or about to become engaged and I am sure they will find their way here and find me in the process, seeing as how I have photos of myself, my ring, my wedding, my hubby etc. I rarely post about personal issues on WB, most of my posts (and responses) are wedding related topics so I really don’t care anyway. I have nothing to hide (from them anyway hehehe)

No one I know has ever really heard of this website so I guess I’m safe, but I have never posted anything offensive or too personal so I’m not too worried.

Nope. SO knows I have been posting on here and doesn’t care, though.

No, but I wouldn’t mind if someone did.
