    imagine it's the 80's:

    your wife has a chance meeting with her friend - the sister of her former boyfriend. They chat a bit, catching up on each other's lives.

    Your wife tells her friend that she is now married; she reaches in her purse and proudly shows her friend a few pictures of you that she carries with her everywhere. She tells her friend how happy she is now, and what a great guy you are.

    A while later, you are sitting at a bar. Across the bar is the friend, who doesn't know you. But she's sure she's seen your face somewhere.

    Your wife walks in and sits next to you. The friend says "of course!" as she makes the connection, and she comes over to say "hi" to her old friend and to meet the wonderful new husband.

    That is how this event would occur in the days before computers and internet. Just about as innocent and unremarkable an incident as can be imagined. It would have been considered by all as a fortunate and happy coincidence. Nobody would see any reason to consider it malevolent or disturbing.

    The only notable difference between then and now is the ability of your wife to chat with her friend via Facebook; so even if they haven't met in person together for quite some time, they can still share stories and pictures. Wonderful, isn't it?

    It would be more like carrying that pic around and showing it to everyone she knows including casual acquaintances. Kind of extreme don't you think? People would have thought that a bit over the top back in the day.

    or setting a picture on your desk at work, where all your friends, workmates, and clients can see it...

    I've only ever seen one small picture of you - but I am pretty sure if you were sitting across the bar from me I would recognize you Chunko!

    The only pic of myself I have posted is over 30 years old. I would be flattered if you recognized me from that pic.:D
