Please help me find a website I used last week that shows you public Facebook events for your city, broken down by date, and - rather uniquely for such websites - lists the confirmed attendees by their self-selected Facebook gender! When you clicked on an event, it would pull up a map, and a list of the attendees, and then give you the option to click through to the Facebook event page. It was such a great resource and it's killing me to not be able to find it anymore!
Facebook showing private messages. Has anyone noticed that PMs are showing up in the timeline? I've personally seen some of my own PMs on a friend's wall. Facebook of course, denies it all.
I have a bunch of first cousins, aunts, and uncles whom I've never met (or if I did I was too young to remember). Both of my parents had falling outs with their siblings and haven't had contact with them for decades. How can I best connect with these folks without stepping on landmines? [more inside]

Facebook people search: Every time I search for a name I get the message: "No results found for your query. Check your spelling or try another term." Internet searching has found a lot of people with this problem, but not solution that I could find. What gives? [more inside]
For the past week or so I have been receiving phishing emails at my non-Facebook email account which appear to be from my Facebook friends. The sender's name is one of my Facebook friends, but the email addresses are not their real email address. The subject line reads FOR (MY FIRST NAME) and the message contains a link (which I never click, of course). Clearly there has been some access to my friend list and my email address. I am not using any apps on Facebook, and never give apps access to my info—my privacy settings are pretty locked down, or so I thought. Facebook is absolutely no help on this. I can't find a way to even report this to them because their reporting mechanism asks for links and there are none. I've changed my password, and locked down my privacy settings even more. Any ideas about how this happened and how to fix the security hole?
A business was leased to another party and they set up and curated a business page on FB. When the lease expired they left and set up a competing business. They took the FB page with them and changed the name on the business page - keeping all the old content and relationships. How do I get the page back? [more inside]

Someone has set up a Facebook account using my work email address. This person has the same first name as me, but a different last name. I am now receiving messages from Facebook meant for her. I have no idea how to contact this person about this, nor have I been able to find a way to contact Facebook about this. Help! [more inside]
So what function of Facebook is it that lets my friends see the comments I've made on pages I like - which they have NOT liked - and comment on them? I've gotten into several conversations lately made more uncomfortable by someone not in the community I'm commenting to jumping in and making a comment about my participation. I thought I had my settings pretty nailed down, but can't figure out where this one is. Thanks. [more inside]
I enjoy using Facebook for entertainment purposes - I get a ton of party invites and information about my friends that way. However, I believe Facebook can also be a useful networking tool for my professional career, and I've underutilized it in that capacity because I'm hesitant to friend my co-workers or managers. [more inside]
Wedding slideshow brainstorm: Is there a way to have an automatically updated slideshow running from a Facebook photo feed? [more inside]
Will someone please explain to me, assuming I am a stupid 5-year old child, how to get off Facebook. "Settings" is useless. Maybe there is a trick I don't know? Thank you.
I'm hoping MeFi can help me with the why and how of an unusual business situation. I own a small marketing agency. An elderly woman wants to retain me to make a Facebook page and write about how she was wronged/is still being wronged by a pair of judges who will not drop a case that should be dropped. In addition to calling out the judges she will make a larger point that judicial character reform is necessary. [more inside]

Is there a way to enable Facebook Comments Box for mobile viewing in Google Blogger? I used these instructions to enable Facebook comments on my blog. It worked out, but it's not showing up in the mobile view. This site discusses how to add a widget to the Blogger Mobile Template. The Facebook Comments Box is not exactly a widget. I imagine there's probably a solution to getting it to appear in the mobile view, similiar to this, but I don't know how to do it. Is there a way to add something like this (mobile='yes') to the plugin code?
I need some intelligent perspectives on why I am so sensitive to my husband looking at women on facebook, and whether this is an issue that can't be solved. [more inside]
I’m not on Facebook because, frankly, I didn’t have very many friends on the site and it was embarrassing. So I deleted the account. But now I’m reconsidering… [more inside]

On Facebook, can you retroactively set the security for all of your posts from public to a specific list? [more inside]
I just visited Facebook and it showed me the login screen with the email address of the guy I'm dating as the username. I was using FB earlier today, puttering around, sending messages and whatnot, and I haven't logged out of FB or restarted my Mac since. What's going on here? Am I paranoid to think that he (or someone else) could have remotely accessed my computer? [more inside]
I recently became enthralled with the unfolding Twitter saga of the larcenous wedding photographer. So now I'm wondering how many similar stories have happened without me realizing; not just the big stories like Anthony Weiner, the Li Gong incident and Cook Source, but more low-key incidents that I might not have heard about where people were lying, cheating, or were just plain wrong and were discovered through social media. The human flesh search engine and Internet vigilantism articles on Wikipedia have some famous examples, but does anyone know about more obscure stuff? Thanks!
One of my awesome boyfriend's distant relatives noticed that I'd liked a kind message she left for my SO on his wall, checked my page, saw that he and I were together and sent me a private message asking if we could be Facebook friends. As a general rule, I do not friend people I've not met in person. I've never been great at sugarcoating things; how can I politely and respectfully decline?
