facebook question

I have a facebook question for anyone who might know. I've gotten e-mail that I now have friends, but I'm not on facebook yet. How can that be?

If I have a facebook entry, please note that IT IS NOT MINE! I haven't signed on to facebook yet!

Allow me to clear things up for you. Technically, YOU DO NOT have a Facebook account - therefore you have NO ENTRY.

The good news is, if you have a friend that already has a Facebook account, he or she can send you an e-mail asking you to join the network. At the same time, that friend can suggest friends for you.

Once you have agreed to join Facebook, you can decide whatever or not to add the friends you were suggested from the invitation e-mail.

This setup is the same when adding friends on Instant Messaging clients such as MSN, YAHOO, or Skype.

I don't have a MySpace account, but the process as I explained above is the same.

When adding friends, you can decide to add them as either normal friends, mutual friends, or friends with limited access (meaning that they can't see your FULL profile).

You don't have a Facebook account. Don't freak out. After reading your post I know what happened. You were sent an invitation to join Facebook. As a bonus, that friend of yours even suggested friends for you.

You might want to contact the facebook people to get that account taken down.

"If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact our privacy staff at privacy@facebook.com .

Okay, thanks to you all for clearing that up for me. I'll look into this, as well as look into getting my own Facebook account. The main thing I want to look into is whether I can have such an account as Andromeda and not have to reveal my secret identity. I mean, what a way to go! My nemesis finds out who I am through Facebook! LOL

That shouldn't be a problem. I logged into my Facebook account and searched under "Andromeda". Below are the results of my search:

There are 3 Pages with many users with the "Andromeda" name across the United States and various International cities.

There is one (1) account under the name "Andromeda Perseus".

There is one (1) account under the name "Dendromina Andromeda". This name is under the "Dallas / Fort Worth, TX" Network.

To not confuse everyone, you could be simple and name it "The Mighty Andromeda", "Mighty Andromeda BSC", "Andromeda/Busty Hero Chick" or a similar name.

You could even hire an artist to create your profile picture, but of course that decision is totally up to you.
