    Help with Facebook

    I don't use Facebook to often... mostly as a connection to chat with old High School or college friends and very little else.

    Well, I have moved in the last six months and Facebooks security doesn't recognize my location.

    So I had to do some security questions. I was waiting for the name of my school, or my first pet, mother's maiden name, whatever.

    But my security questions were photos of my friends. People I haven't seen in 40 years and I never really looked at their photos. Now they want me to ID them, some of these photos were baby pictures or grandkids... there is no way I could get them.

    They give you seven photos and I could skip two. Then out of the other five, I had five choices... this is a crazy method.

    Then I tried to find a way to contact Facebook... the only way is to be a member as far as I can see... so do I have to start a new account or is there someway to contact them and explain that this security is crazy... at least for me.

    That is wild. I haven't come up against that yet.

    Re: Help with Facebook

    LOL.....that is funny stuff. I thought I had set up security questions when I started my FB page a little over a year ago. I'm with you, though.....most of my FB friends have pics of their kids up that I would never recognize. Hell, my profile pic is one of Space Ghost, for crying out loud! No one would ID that!

    I had this in Jamaica, since it didn't recognize that computer, but it only involved a security question, not photos. Does not sound like a good time.
