    So I was commenting on a post using my driod and when the post showed up on the FB page it was as if my GF had made the comment instead of myself. This is the second time this has happened. Any ideas why this is happening?

    My guess is she's checking out your phone and FB account when you're not looking, then doing a bad job of covering her tracks. If your girlfriend's account and interference isn't involved somehow, then your post could randomly look like it's coming from any FB account in existence, but that's not what's happening...

    yeah its a little two much of a coincidence that its always the same user your "posting as" and that person just so happens to be someone that you know, pretty closely. To test it out, put a lock pin on your phone so she can not get on it, OR create an m.facebook.com icon on your home screen and tell her to only use that OR just breakup with her, what ever floats your boat.

    this is all happening w/o the phone ever leaving my hand/pocket. Ill post a comment and it posts as me. then the next time I post it posts as her. then I will see that and immediately send a post saying, that was from me, not her. All with her never having touched the phone. This has only happened two times.

    Me too. It's been doing that for a while now, but I always just assumed it was because I still haven't updated to the last version of Facebook since it supposedly drains your battery (Was that ever fixed, BTW?).

    I have 2 accounts. Sometimes for some reason it gets them confused. The app will be 1 login and if I go to full site it maybe the other..
    Confront her, she has logged from your phone atleastonce. Clear all data on browsers and the app.

    Yesterday I opened up the Facebook app and for some reason it was the previous version, even though I've been updated for weeks. Quite odd.

    I also use bffphoto and if I don't log off of it when I go to Facebook it tends to do the swap thingy. So i guess make sure Amy apps that use Facebook are logged off completely ..

    Come to think of it, I had logged her in once before when we were on the road so she could check something her sister sent her so thats probably whats happening. I know she isnt sneaking onto my phone to check up on me. She has no reason to and she isnt the jealous distrustful type...
