That’s very strange, just curious are you in HR? Can’t see why anyone would invade someone’s personal space like that.

@RedAngelDreamer:  OPI unfortunately there are a lot of people looking for jobs, yourself included. I don’t think they are doing anything wrong by networking and sending you a quick message to see if you know of any available positions in the area. Just remember they are in the same boat as you are and would love nothing more than what you stated in your last sentence.

Especially if the facebook profile they are emailing is branded for / geared towards the company you’re currently working with.

I actually found my present job by networking through facebook. I’m not quite sure why this is a problem…

I would be bothered too… it sounds like these are acquaintances at best trying to reach out to any contact they can.  Or are they strangers, not even acquaintances?  Why not just remove your contact info from your facebook site?  Maybe ignore the messages?  It wouldn’t be the first time someone ignored a message or a poke on facebook…

It wouldn’t be so bad if they were using the proper channels, ie. an email or a phone call, but in my mind, sending Facebook messages is very professional, and I wouldn’t be recommending them for any positions either.  OP, I think you have the right to be annoyed.
