I was alerted today that an individual unknown to me is using my photo/banner (picture of me, my back tat, looking out at Chicago), as their personal pro pic for Facebook.
This connected the dots on a question someone else asked me a few weeks ago. The question posed to me was “do you have another facebook profile under a different name?”.Â I answered friend and informed her I only had one profile, under my real name, and I asked her why she would ask such a question. She never responded.
Today, when I was alerted of this stranger (that seems to have some connection to adoption) using my photo it seemed to fall into place.
Please note for the record I have only one personal Facebook account. I do however maintain a “brand” page for my jewelry biz. I also have this blog, two twitter accounts (one for personal use and one for jewelry), one pinterest account and one tumblr.Â I also operate and maintain ehbabes.com.
Any other sites, outside of the above, bearing my name or likeness, do not belong to me. If you ever have a concern or question, please ask.
While I do not believe the stranger had any malicious intentions, I feel it is important to clarify. I recently found a few typos on another site that referenced me as an adoptive mother.Â I had that corrected.Â Being I volunteer, write, and operate in the adoption space, I feel it it important to note such inconsistencies. File it under street cred or something.
Maybe having been erasedÂ as my daughters mother by adoption, Â I am particularly sensitive to proper use of my name and image.
