Facebook’s FriendPhotoCaptcha = Your Screwed

AdHustler.com get’s various reports about what’s going on deep in the trenches of online marketing.  One development that’s caught my eye lately is Facebook’s FriendPhotoCaptcha.  Most of us have Facebook Profiles.  Some of us (like me) get tons of friend request from random people.  Although i’ve significantly cut down on accepting friend requests from people I don’t know, I have a lot of people on my profile who quite honestly I have no idea who they are.  Since I haven’t had the time to go through all of these friends and cut out the dead weight I realized that I am putting my account at risk with Facebook’s new FriendPhotoCaptcha.

Here’s how it works.  You get a page from Facebook saying that they don’t recognize your location and that you need to “confirm your identity.”  In order to do so they put you through a FriendPhotoCaptcha test.  The test takes random Facebook photo’s (some not even of faces) and makes you pick from a list which friend it is.  I don’t know about you but I don’t know the name of a lot of my Facebook Friends by looking at their pictures.  If you get the questions wrong your account remains locked down and you can try again in an hour.

Since becoming friends requires the permission of both parties I don’t see why being friends with people you don’t actually know well is an issue to Facebook.  I’m guessing that this FriendPhotoCaptcha is a move to ensure that everyone on your Facebook Profile is actually your friend in real life and not just online.  If not, it’s a very poorly thought out security mechanism.  Either way it makes you think twice about confirming people as your friends that you don’t actually know.

If I ever get locked out of my account I hope they don’t start quizzing me on my friends favorite foods or dating preferences.

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
