Do Your Facebook friends add maiden names?

Do any of your Facebook friends add hyphen and maiden name?

For example “Julie Smith-Jones”.

Of all my friends on Facebook, only certain people from a small area that is actually a bit isolated do add hyphen and maiden name. Most just select one or the other.

How common is it?

Not entirely uncommon.

I scrolled through a moment ago and most appear to be tied to ethnicity or they were married into their career.

I know quite a few women that do it only on FB, not in their regular lives. I assume it’s to be easier to find by old friends and classmates searching for them.
