Facebook PSA

So apparently, if you set up certain privacy settings on FB targeted at a particular person, and that person deletes their profile and then un-deletes it, your privacy settings for that person go away.

For example, let's say your ex boyfriend who broke up with you by changing his relationship status on FB to single decides to send you a friend request.  And let's say you reluctantly accept that friend request.  And then let's say that he puts some passive aggressive message on his wall about song lyrics and forgetting "the girl he fell in love with 3 years ago."  And then let's say in a moment of weakness, you put up a passive aggressive post on your wall about how lame it is to be passive aggressive via FB walls, and then you block ex from your wall so that he can't comment.  And then let's say ex gets his wittle feelers hurt and deletes his profile over it.  And then let's say that he decides, eh, I miss FB, and un-deletes his profile.  Well guess what?  Now he can post on your wall.

This is all hypothetical, of course.

I'm drunk.  That's not hypothetical.  That's for real-reals.

    make sure you post a message about passive aggressive ex boyfriends and how pathetic they are.

    Tell the hypothetical person this happened to that this sucks.  A little funny, but it still sucks.

    I would like to see some of these hypothetical passive aggressive posts.  Are any of them lamebook worthy?
  • Options
    Yes, totally lamebook worthy.  But I think they disappeared when he took his hiatus from FB.  Too bad.

    Wonder if thatshit got cached; I didn't know about lamebook when it happened.
  • Options
    OH SNAP.  Are any of you friends with me on FB?  Go on my wall and post under him and be all like, "hey, aren't you the douche who broke up with heels by changing your relationship status to single?"

    Ok, my drunk ass needs to go to bed.

    People that think they could move in on a happily married woman are pathetic. Facebook, of all places-not any classier than myspace. I'm sure he'll be back once he needs someone's attention again.
  • Options
    Hahaha heels. If I were your fb friend I'd gladly do that.

    I don't see his post on your wall!

    If someone deletes their account and then makes a new one, how could they see yours (anyones?) without refrending you?

    east - from what Heels said, it seems like there's a magic 'reverse' button when you delete your account.  That apparently resets things.  I don't think he made a brand new account.

    Im also confused why GIS>P&E... odd.

    I also think you should just delete him.
  • Options
    Yeah, I've had friends "de-activate" their account, and then when they decide they want to be back on facebook again, they automatically start popping up on my friends list again.

    Thats so weird.  I shun you and your odd ways, Mark Zuckerberg.

    This.  When you de-activate, you can re-activate at any time and your friends list, profile, pics, and settings are just how you left them.  I deactivated my account while i studied for the CPA exam to keep me from playing on the interwebz when I should have been studying. 

    And now my husband has seen it and is grumpy and wonders why we are friends on FB.  <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-undecided.gif" border="0" alt="Undecided" title="Undecided" />

    Oops!  And oh dear.
  • Options
    Ahh. I was wondering which one it was. Do you want me to make a comment? I totally will.
  • Options
    Haha nah.  Now that I'm sober, it doesn't seem as funny.

    I deleted him and explained to Wes about the whole him deleting his profile and then coming back thing.  I'm 26 years old and having facebook drama.  Gah.
