I have no idea what is happening here. I'm using Mathematica 10.

I mistyped "FriendNetwork" as "FriendsNetwork" and got a weird result:

enter image description here

The option "FriendsNetwork" is not even listed in the help entry for the SocialMedia function.

How is that even possible? I rerun the query multiple times and it gave the same result. I checked my facebook feed and I don't see that image anywhere and I don't know of a friend who would have such a photo.

Can someone try this themselves and check the result?

The photo is the profile picture of the Facebook page facebook.com/FriendsNetwork. The same misunderstanding has been posted here before which is why I know about it but I can't find that post now.
