My facebook profile photo shows up on an email to a friend who has a yahoo email address, but is not my Facebook friend. All my FB privacy settings are at the max. Is this a Yahoo privacy issue? I don't want my photo to go to other than FB friends.

I recently sent an email to a friend, who is NOT a Facebook friend, who has a yahoo email account, and my Facebook profile picture appeared next to the email. My privacy settings on FB only allow FB friends to see my photo. Why is another yahoo account that is not a FB friend seeing my profile photo and is there a Yahoo privacy setting that will eliminate this from happening? Thank you.

This happened

Just once or twice

Did you check that your Facebook settings haven't changed?

Facebook may have changed them as part of a software update. Is there a link in that email (signature) with a link to that picture? Try to send an email to yourself.

Do you have your accounts linked? It maybe that Yahoo has picked up your avatar from your Yahoo account, so check there as to whether of not you do have a Yahoo avatar or have linked your accounts.
