An anonymous reader writes "In recent months I have noticed a trend on 2 social network sites. Facebook and Linkedin, doing things that are resulting in miss-representation.
Lets look at Facebook first
With Linkedin I recently updated my profile, I added an additional few words into my work outling. The next day I had an inbox full of people asking what had happened, congratulating me on the new job, wanting to know why I had left. It turns out Linkedin had posted on my news thread and the thread of all of my contacts that I had left the business, causing just a slight bit of panic across the globe. I notified Linkedin and they said nothing can be done
I am interested if anybody else on Slashdot has seen either of the above, or if I have just be unfortunate?"
