Yesterday at work a co-worker, whom I've never met, approached me and said she saw my wedding photos and complimented me on how nice it seemed. I thanked her, but was curious as to how she came across those photos. Before I had the chance to inquire she admitted she stalked my Facebook.
See my privacy settings are loose as I don't really give a damn who sees my photos or whatnot. I guess the girl, who apparently knows my name, looked me up and took a gander at my pics. Oddly enough she admitted to all of this and decided to strike up a conversation about it.
She then stated she's getting married in Mexico next month, but asked me about the Bahamas as she's thinking of traveling there with her future husband next year. We chatted a bit about the country and what resorts to stay in. Finally I wished her luck on her upcoming nuptials and the conversation ended.
As she walked away I couldn't help but think why she decided to stalk my FB account. It seems natural to do that to someone you know, but to someone you've never met?
