I updated my profile pic this morning and a man I don't know has shared it to his page ( we have 2 mutual friends) why would he do this?

Because He luurves you?

Maybe he tried to press like and accidentally shared it! Although he would have to hit 2 buttons to share it...

Have you been hacked?

Was it just a standard pic of your face?

When I had fb my kids would often get hold of my phone and share things, like things, friend request people etc.

Check your settings and who can share stuff you posted.

Don't think I have been hacked and he is too old to have little ones I think!

Ok Clandestino will check that. I am not too fussed I just think it's a strange thing to do

It's very easy to hit share by mistake especially on phone. If one of your mutual friends liked it it would show on his news feed.

You can instantly remove it from his page but blocking him.

by blocking him

I share stuff all the time by accident when I'm scrolling on my phone and accidentally tap too hard!

Is it a photo of you? Or a meme?

When you change your profile pic, change the settings to "friends" as profile changes are public otherwise. If it's a photo of you I'd be tempted to ask him why he shared but it's more than likely he's did it by accident.

My dad does this all of the time as he is technically illiterate and can't use his lap top properly.

FarrowandBallAche Tue 26-Apr-16 11:06:18

I bet he hasn't shared it and that it's something weird going on with FB or you have been hacked.

I commented on a friends status the other day but it came up as if another friend had commented and not me. She isn't friends with the person whose stays I commented on.

I've changed my password since.

Sometimes I do this if my phone is acting up. He probably doesn't even realise he has done it.

footballcrazy11 Tue 26-Apr-16 11:15:08

Seems perfectly innocent then I guess it was an accident

footballcrazy11 Tue 26-Apr-16 11:16:17

RudeElf it is a photo of me

314inTheSky Tue 26-Apr-16 11:18:29

BY accident I bet. I'm in a private group and i was on my phone once and i very nearly shared all the photos to my main page. I would have died. I was pressing back back back furiously. Nearly died.
I've also shared some thing I didn't intend to, not as embarrassing but I'm sure people thought 'whaaaat?' and 'eh why'

Or it could be someone who really doesn't understand how FB works. I have a college friend who likes a lot of my stuff but who has also shared loads of my posts, things like family gathering pics, status updates of no interest to the wider world etc. We have a lot of mutual friends who are therefore presumably seeing my stuff twice and his friends who are seeing pics of some random person's holiday or Scout parade via him. I'm not bothered by it particularly but more bemused that he has so little understanding of what sharing means.

FarrowandBallAche Tue 26-Apr-16 11:48:57

If it was an accident he would have removed it surely? Can you ask one of your friends if it's still there?

I still think he didn't share it.

I've been liking things on FB this week according to one of my friends that I certainly have not liked!

Ooh this reminds me of the time I accidentally stumbled on a Twitter account that was reposting everything I'd written as if they'd written it - only my account, no one else's and only messages which featured my DP. Very odd!
