Fusion: Facebook recommended that this psychiatrist’s patients friend each other

Oh, ewwwwwwww: Facebook recommended that this psychiatrist’s patients friend each other. “While some of these incredibly accurate friend suggestions are amusing, others are alarming, such as this story from Lisa*, a psychiatrist who is an infrequent Facebook user, mostly signing in to RSVP for events. Last summer, she noticed that the social network had started recommending her patients as friends—and she had no idea why…. The next week, things got weirder.” Facebook didn’t have a good explanation, which might be the most disturbing element of this story.
