It was very well done.

And yes, I understand the conflict there. My husband is one of those who friends and likes everything he encounters. AND he's currently looking for a job. Greeeeaaat.

I know I should take it seriously and all, but I just couldn't stop giggling about the fact that I did it three times, and every time he didn't pull up a single picture of me that was actually taken in the city I live in. Or in the state, for that matter.

It also kind of amused me how he got the city name right but there was no address, so Google Maps had a straight line going down streets on the other side of town.

I kinda want to see what this would do from some of my friends' Facebook accounts, though - does the Google Maps part usually have their address or something, or is it just the city, always?

I can't remember the last time I accepted an app on FB, but most of them do not ask for all of that, nor do they itemize it.

Pretty obvious what they're trying to do. Epic fail.

That was really creepy. Until one of my pictures dramatically popped up and it was just a shot of my butt while I was rock climbing, then I lol'd.

What's with the clock counting down at the end? I'm not patient enough to wait for it to count down for an hour.

I think if you have an address on FB, it Google Maps the address.

I had the same thing you did, as I don't have an address on FB.

Sidenote: Who puts their ADDRESS on FB anyway?

I'm amazed at how many of my friends "Check In" at their homes! I started messaging them and saying "Hey...Do you know that when someone clicks on your check in, it shows your address??"
EVERY SINGLE TIME the response is "LOL, I know." or "LOL I know but I KNOW all of my facebook friends." Yeah, okay.
Weirdos.

Why would you check in at home?! Besides it showing your address it can also give people an idea of when you are and when your not home.

Both of these were true for me and it made me feel much better. I also laughed at the fact that my profile pic is not one of me so the photo in the car was less creepy.

Ditto. I was super eeked until it dramatically panned to a picture of my feet in swimming flippers. Then I giggled.

The thing that really scared me was seeing my little cousins as part of the video. I am friends with them and, while my page is on lockdown with little info, I could still be a medium to them if I were hacked. That gave me chills.

Haha this would be a nice way to advertise for a movie. All the pictures that it showed of me were pictures of me with people I'd just met. It was strange. I love that it tells you who the next target is too.

Am I the only person who doesn't just randomly add people, and I never add apps? Maybe I'm just old fashioned, though
