    How many people on facebook have your name!?

    OK PENG HAS A GAME!!!

    For those of you who have facebook, how many people also have your name on there? I am proud to say that my name is unique on facebook :D And it's nothing all that weird either.

    So, here's how to play

    Step 1: Go to facebook and search for your name
    Step 2: Count
    Step 3: Profit.

    GO!

    I use facebook with a pseudonym.
    0 people have the same name than me in facebook; only my brother and my sister have the same last name.
    Google returns 2 entries with my name in; from university and a high school I attended. I'm 100% sure I share my last name with only 2 people in the world: my brother and sister. It's a mix of my parent's last names.
    So I'm on the "unique" side too, but not "proud" side. :)

    OMG! There's one in my city!! wow...she likes REO Speedwagon and Journey :yuck:. She has pig tails (not kidding). She likes "The Young And The Restless". And karaoke. And shopping malls (yes, that's actually listed).

    Holy crap, she's my normal twin!

    Edit: oh and - you can't make this up - in her pic, she's posing next to a chainsaw-carved bear.

    4 including myself.

    But what is weirder, is that I played this game 35 years ago, in the phone book. (this is how we entertained ourselves B4 the internets)

    Someone by my name(including middle initial), lived 5 houses away.

    I see on Facebook that he's moved equidistant from where I moved away from.

    Sure sign that he's an anti-Om, and we were wise not to meet.

    Do you win for being unique, or for having the most people with your name?

    What's a phone book?

    And I'm not sure how you win this game.

    About 395.
     
  9. Re: How many people on facebook have your name!?

    I'm the one and only, even the first few pages of Goggle are just me

    Including me, there are 10 Jimmy Snyders. However, one of these is a placeholder for Jimmy the Greek and shouldn't count. There were too many James Snyders to count, but at least 446.
     
  11. Re: How many people on facebook have your name!?

    3 of me. I used to think I was unique in the modern world (google returned some of me in the 1800's), before facebook came along! :(:(
     
  12. Re: How many people on facebook have your name!?

    I am the only one. Even my last name is unique to my family, we're the only ones who have it in Canada... All the rest are relatives back in Sweden.

    I have a friend, who is a guy, whose name is "Jamie". It's hilarious looking up his name and seeing him at the top of the list then dozens of girls in the rest of the search result.

    There's only one other "me" with a Facebook account, and it's my cousin.

    Only one other person using "Bob". Their profile is private, so I know nothing about them.

    Plus another 8 using "Robert" (including one from Germany and one from Poland).

    0.0 and I like it that way... FacePlant... phooey... with rare exception... it (almost) always does more harm than good.

    Rhody... :yuck:
