Of course you will find a lot info about yourself - all is public records. Everything you post on Internet is searchable and never goes away, even if you "delete" it. YOU should be very careful what you post on Internet, and that incl. pictures.
Unlisted doesn't mean much. If someone wants to know, for mere $5 they will get all of this:
your Full Name
Age & Date of Birth
Address
Address History
Phone Numbers
Aliases
Relatives
Neighbors
Email Address(es)
Social Networks
Property Records
Marriage & Divorce
Criminal Records
Bankruptcies
Liens
Judgments
Lawsuits

You can disable this feature, but that only means that you will not see it anymore. Your friends and their friends will.
Here how to disable it:
How to Disable the Facebook Friend Finder Suggestion | eHow
I don't see the same thing that page talks about in the center of the screen

"Click the "Manage Imported Contacts" link under "Add Personal Contacts as Friends" in the center of the screen."

isn't there.

Since I think facebook goes overboard attempting to match up people to be friends, I didn't appreciate their near constant efforts to persuade me to be friend with the friends of my children and my grandchildren and the friends of their friends. I contacted the main office (which isn't easy to do) and told them I think it's invasive. Someone said how much they work to make life better for us. Oh, thank you, but I joined facebook only so I could look at photographs of my grandchildren. I have my own friends and facebook cannot help me chose them. Please please stop. They have noticeably decreased their activity in that direction.

No one is able to tell me how they are able to get these people full name based only on cell phone number unless these people have my first and last name listed in their contacts...

Hmmm

If it's using the cell numbers, it's probably just matching them to that person's facebook account. If they put their cell number on their facebook account, then it will be easy for FB to give you a first and last name.

Really too much. If I am unlisted will that at least stop me from being found for absolutely free??


I don't know why I am suddenly feeling a bit paranoid.
If you go to Google maps and enter you address, you may also be able to view your house on street view!

I am OLD and I have facebook. It seems in the last week something peculiar has happened on facebook. Suddenly I am getting the "people you may know" that is suggesting people that I have met OLD and one I met in person at ballroom dance.
I have their phone number in my smart phone but in some cases I didn't even list them as a contact, and in a few cases I didn't even know the person last name... just first name. After a brief text session we realized that we were not compatible and did not contact any longer... and now they are being suggested as a facebook friend... first AND LAST NAME.

There is even a couple that I deleted their phone numbers from my phone...

My thought is if I am getting their page as suggestion, most likely they are getting mine as well.

Is this something new? Is facebook now tracking people strictly thru cell phone numbers??? How can this be???

It is distressing because my last name was something I reserved for people who I deemed as balanced based on conversations over a course of days/weeks. There have been a few that after one talk on phone I realize that they are not for me.

Last name is something I withhold until I feel comfortable... WELL NOT ANYMORE thanks for FACEBOOK!!

Is there something I am missing in my privacy settings?
1. Don't give FB your cell phone number

2. Don't use your real name on FB

Oh. Ok thanks that makes sense. It was really bothering me because I thought that cell phones were harder to trace unless you seen in law enforcement.
