    hi, I dont usually go on facebook but been on a lot the last few days due to being back with family because of christmas and not really being able to go far because of the whether.

    However in the right hand side where facebook recommends things, like on photo albums it says Friends' photo albums and lists a few other albums, pretty much every other page i go on comes up with my ex gf there.

    Its annoying and depressing lol. I dont wanna see any photos of her, whys facebook showing my so many photos of her its like its taunting me on purpose.

    I never added her as my gf on facebook, and I dont visit her profile alot so I dont know what would make facebook keep putting her there.

      Because you share common "friends"

      But seriously I think they take it off the msn. I remember having someone on my msn and having no mutual friends together, then one day they were on my suggestion list. Weird.

      It's because you have spent too much time fapping to her photos.

      Yes, I'm very unoccupied at the moment. Your talk about facebook as though it's an actual person! Maybe you're reading too much into this. Or maybe...IT'S A SIIIIIIIIIIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

      Maybe if you removed her as a friend it would stop? Either that or if you remove her from you feed it might make you see less of her! Sometimes I hate Facebook and this is certainly one of the reasons! It always comes up with the last picture you possibly ever want to see...

      This happened to me as well, it's just because facebook recommends photos from friends that you've had a lot of interaction with (profile views, sending messages etc)

      It sucks, I know, but it'll go away after a while.
      Facebook doesn't keep records of whose profile you've viewed. (Yes, all the "see who viewed your profile" apps are fake.)

      Do you seriously feel like a good person because of that? Sure, he made typing errors but why didn't you think to address his problem before you got up on your high horse? He came here looking for advice, not to be ridiculed.

      And, it's because you have mutual friends.

      I used to get this too and it was really upsetting, then when it started showing pics of him and his new squeeze I had to delete him from Facebook, not worth getting worked up over for the sake of an online 'friendship'.

      Alternatively, you can hide all posts from a particular user without actually deleting them. This might solve your problem but I don't know as I've never used it, it might only hide their status updates.

      Facebook is getting more and more creepy and personal these days...

      This- plus you probably share mutual friends.

      'You're', surely? Unless the sentence somehow doesn't require a predicate.
