Nothing there tells me that you are actually linked - it's just Qantas requesting you to link. Unless you go through the process, they won't be able to do much.

How is it connected? You have to sign in to give them access. Hardly connected yet.
Without putting up personal details, I can't show the actual screen that came up on the booking I had last week

The thumbnail shows. "This also allows Qantas to access your public profile"

I suspect you've already logged into Facebook with your browser. Its just using cookies suggesting the currently logged in user is you. Unless you sign in and grant Qantas access to your profile, they don't have it.

The link has been there for a while now.

I would not get too excited as I see the link and I have never signed up to Facebook in any form...

I love Facebook :). I very rarely post and I am incredibly selective as to who I allow to be a friend, but it is an easy way to stay in touch with what is going in the lives of more distant friends and relatives.

I often am quite regretful about the people with whom I lost touch after moving countries and cities and my kids will never have that issue.

I use the Messenger option for some of my flights. I find it quite good actually.
I’m also a regular Facebook user which probably helps.
I’m not at all concerned about what info QF might be getting from my Facebook.
Google is doing a great job of that already well outside Facebook :p

I have it on good authority that it's the Off-Topic thread on AFF....
exactly -for all the people on here who sneer at Facebook, this board is social media and I really can’t see too much difference. People post pictures of their meals on various threads, talk about their travels and the off topic thread definitely reminds me of what I see on Facebook :)

Oh I fear you may have opened a can of worms there FM
There are many people on here who believe that it isn’t Social Media, no amount of facts will convince them :p

LOL, AFF is nothing BUT social media..

My "What is facebook?" was tongue in cheek, although I personally am not on FB, I'm told by some that it means there's very little to discuss when you meet people because you're fully aware of whats been happening in their lives.
