Hi All

So, just been browsing my Facebook and noticed that it was suggesting a load of new people to 'befriend'.  Some looked vaguely familiar so I had a closer look and realised they were pictures of some girls I've punted...!!!

I then discovered that my punting phone number, which was a spare from years ago, was linked on my Facebook when I first opened my account, and evidently the Facebook program on the phone has married up the numbers saved with Facebook profiles!!  About two seconds later it dawned on me that if it works one way, it probably works the other way round too!

Instant delete of my phone number from Facebook, delete of the app off my punting phone, turn on all privacy settings etc and hope for the best...


Thought I'd warn anyone who might have done the same thing...

Facebook?  More like Spybook.

The more I read about this the luckier I feel as the whole social media bollocks has passed me by.
I am a member of two punting forums, this one & another that I've never contributed to & that's the sum total of my social media exploits.

Probably said before also but WhatsApp is a devious little bugger as well......

not really, if everyone keeps their punting phones for phoning prossies and sms only and absolutely nothing else without exception. They'll be completely fine.

Yes always good to see these warnings so those not aware are made aware. I use an old basic Nokia as my punting phone and that's all I need, i have no interest in Facebook anyway.

As a previous software  programmer, I have always been anti face book mainly due to the nature of their software platform.
Face book should be renamed Two faced, since most users do not realise how intrusive they are at data mining.
If fact, I would rather they had balls to announce that they are indeed a company that happily spies on people and their mobiles phones and contacts on their diary and other areas. :scare:
Better never to download their spy software in the first place and let the yanks play with their own balls.

Cheers for the heads up big man! Big brother is watching!

I'm with y123 on this, no Facebook, no twitter and this is the only punting forum I use.

Like yorky, social media seems to have passed me by

How it works is like this: if you have FB or Whatsapp on your punting phone, it will pick up contact numbers and will try to march them against numbers in its own directory (of billions of numbers). If there's a match it will suggest friends. The best way to avoid this is to not log in to your FB from your punting phone.

When i buy any mobile device like smartphone, tablet or laptop the first thing i always do - i remove facebook app. It gets on my nerves.

An old Nokia phone for punting, and no interest in any social media for myself. Just another tool to be spied on.

Not only that but the amount of shit I have had to clean up after on-line arguments my kids & wife have gotten into with other family members over one misinterpreted comment beggars belief  :dash:

+1 for a Nokia brick. And the battery lasts for weeks as well.

My punting life is completely and totally disassociated from my 'real' life. I don't punt for a relationship, I punt because I want to stick my cock into places it would never go in my real life.

It doesn't matter what type of phone YOU have - Nokia brick, Sony paperweight, iPhone... what matters is that when you call a girl, she could save your punting phone number to her phone.  If that phone she is using has Facebook on it, then that number goes onto the search and you might pop up in a list of potential Facebook friends.  It's got nothing to do with your phone, and everything to do with hers.

So the only way to make sure you don't come up in a search is to ensure that your punting phone number is NOT registered on your own Facebook account if you have one.

I'm a Samsung brick man myself.

I punt for the exact same reasons as above!

Urgh, I have literally just bought a punting phone for the very reason I don't trust social media not to worm its way in. Luckily I am single but even so.

Anyone who puts a phone number on their FB profile is asking for trouble. Punting or not. People who you dont know that well but are connected on Facebook instantly have your number and can call you easily.

Your right and best way of doing this is buy a PAYG sim brand new then only pay cash for top up's. Happy days  :D

If your married or have a partner, remember to use a different browser on the PC.
IE and Chrome are buggers for running adverts on the holiday sites and shoes you've been looking at.
Amazon is one thing, but SWMBO wouldn'y like an adultwork banner running up the side of screen.

I use chrome for 'normal' stuff
Maxthon for private and don't have a desk top /start icon available.
