Yes, it's this. A friend of mine graduated from NS, got her license in the mail, and posted a picture of it on Facebook.On the spot where the license number resides, she'd Photoshopped it out and typed "git ur own". I about died laughing.

I don't get why people would find this concerning, your license number is easily accessible public information, regardless of whether or not you post it on facebook.

Poke bee's nests much? Why should you court intrusion? Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
What is it we think someone is going to do with knowledge of someone's license number that they couldn't do with just knowing your name?

I don't find it concerning. I find it stupid. And weird.

My question is why?

The real question is whether the op, aptly named nomad, is still wandering.
I suppose not much.
However, I am of the mind as to why would one want to give private information in any public venue unless absolutely required.
It seems like a poor practice.

I don't understand why anyone would post it on social media, but it is easily accessible public information.
I've been wondering that myself.
This is one, and so far the only one time I've seen "text speak" used where it actually enhances the communication!
I guess my confusion is that someone's RN license isn't private, it's about as public as public information gets.
