It should be your choice as to whether your phone number is connected with your Facebook profile, and whether someone can use one to find the other.Even if you altered your privacy settings to ensure that your phone number is only visible to you, other people can still use it to look you up.You wouldn’t buy a dog that bites you all the time.And you wouldn’t be friends with someone who regularly ditches you. Then why the hell are you trying to make a girlfriend out of a woman who doesn’t want to date you? The entrepreneur Derek Sivers once wrote a blog post where he said that “If I’m not saying ‘Hell Yeah!The go-to destination for everyone who wants to murder OKCupid and burn in a fire.I’ve been getting so many emails and comments from you all asking where I’ve gone that I had to come back and say, “Hello.” And then quickly disappear back into the night.It’s setting up two or three Tinder dates a week and, chances are, sleeping with all of them, so you could rack up 100 girls you’ve slept with in a year.”He says that he himself has slept with five different women he met on Tinder—“Tinderellas,” the guys call them—in the last eight days. ”“We don’t know what the girls are like,” Marty says.“And they don’t know us,” says Alex.
I’ve landed a job writing for the television, and it has taken up a lot of my blogging time.When I spoke to the Facebook user in question, she was shocked and surprised that I had been able to find her profile simply by entering her mobile phone number.She confirmed that her privacy settings correctly locked down to such an extent that her phone number should only be accessible to her. Imagine, for instance, if a company knew the telephone numbers of people calling it – they would now be able to determine your name too, and possibly use it for more aggressive marketing.Well, all of my blogging time, as well as staring out the window at nothing time, and my thinking of funny nicknames for my cat time.But the season is winding up in another month, and I hope I’ll be able to return to It’s Not a Match soon after and offer my “wit and wisdom” every now and again.If you use Facebook, your phone number may not be as private as you think.
