I wasn't even awake at the time and my computer browser history showed no activity until 10:00am.

Most facebook users belong on the Jerry Springer Show anyway... Didn't Mr. Zuckenburg or whatever his name is ask how can these users trust him, saying it way back in his college days... I never needed it, and don't care what friends poop look like in the toilet. Hahaha.
