Ok thanks for the responses peeps, although I thought the face palm was a bit harsh whoever that was! Just so you know; I'm not trying to pull off
any undercover operations by using my facebook account to infiltrate member state borders.
I'm also pretty sure facebook is not trying to track my every move by covertly using my mobile number to track my whereabouts.
I do however believe that people in the general population are looking up my facebook page (as they would since I am new to the area) and that this
information is available in a separate fb account which I have set up.
My mobile is attached only to verify that I have a legitimate account which is necessary to activate the fb account. Although I don't doubt that
this information is then used to collect as much personal details out of you as possible here are the facts as far as I can ascertain up to this
* I have moved to a remote area of Australia in which I have added no new contacts to my facebook accounts.
* I admit I have used the facebook mobile app to access my regular (old) fb page from which location data could have been transmitted through to
* Fb has managed to 'connect the dots' and recommended friends for my new (unassociated, apart from my mobile verification) fb account - based
on my whereabouts whilst using this old fb account.
Note: Some of these suggested 'new' friends happened to actually work at my new work location, although I repeat I never added any new fb contacts
from my new location to any fb accounts. They do however have my mobile number.
The only way i can conceive of information passing between the two fb accounts would be: information privately held within my computer, information
privately held within my phone or information covertly sent to fb to track my whereabouts via my mobile phone.
If anyone out there with facebook accounts could open a new fb account in 'isolated conditions' and report back I would be grateful (for some
undisclosed period of time), if anything just to see how far social media infiltration spreads through our society. Thanks,
