Use Facebook to help you find a date…

With your wife.

In another masked attempt to tick off most every one of their customers, Facebook again slips into some shady practices and backs them up with “you agreed to it in the Terms of Service.”

Take for example, Peter Smith, who was recently presented an ad on Facebook aiming to connect him with Hot Singles and the image of the hot single was his own wife. No, she hadn’t left her status as single and no she hadn’t signed up for or similar. Cheryl, like the hundreds of millions of other Facebook users had no idea of a setting that Facebook defaults to true allowing your picture to be used in your friends’ Facebook ads.

Thanks, Facebook, for reminding me again why I have no use for your borderline-ethical services.

And for you actual Facebook users, here’s the steps to change your settings to help you avoid lady-of-the-night status on your friends’ pages:

1. Settings
2. Privacy
3. News Feed and Wall
4. Click on “Facebook Ads”
5. In the “Appearance in Facebook Ads” box, click “no one”
