GRETA Guerin, Molly Rigby and Katie Ryan don’t know how the creators of a controversial Border Facebook page had got hold of old pictures of them.
They believe the images, taken up to four years ago, were copied from their Facebook accounts before being published on a public site that can be viewed by anyone on Facebook.
Nurse in training, Katie Ryan, 21, said the photo published of her had been taken when she was 18.
She and her friends saw on Sunday she’d been added to the site, but she still hasn’t found who sent in her photo or how they got it.
Within hours of the post, the Charles Sturt University student was bombarded by 20 friend requests from “random guys” who had seen it.
She said she didn’t want to be judged solely on appearance and felt exploited knowing anyone could see and comment on her picture.
“People can be pretty nasty about pictures of girls and they haven’t had any choice about photos being there,” she said.
“I think they should have girls’ permission before they put the photos up.”
Wodonga dancer Molly Rigby, 18, also appeared in a photo taken on her 18th birthday.
She said she didn’t want to be associated with some raunchy images on the site of women modelling lingerie.
After being mysteriously listed as a “babe”, former Catholic College Wodonga student Greta Guerin, 19, wants to see the page closed.
“It freaked me out. You just don’t know who is sitting behind the computer,” she said.
Since the image went up she has received about 15 friend requests a day from people she doesn’t know.
She said she was mature enough to deal with the unwanted attention, but was worried younger girls might get carried away with who and who isn’t named on the site.
“It’s a bit pretentious and sending the wrong idea to younger people,” Ms Guerin said.
