    To defend missybubble, she didn't actually say "I seen" - I took it as: (this was) seen on Facebook.

    If the sentence began with 'I seen' then it should have been 'I saw'. But there is nothing wrong with 'I have seen'.

    So it is not necessarily incorrect to write 'Seen on Facebook:'.

    In the same way a sentence can start 'Seen on savannahs, wildebeests have finely honed dancing skills to enable them to dazzle gazelles ...' and is grammatically correct.

    Good point! I take back my comment . I guess I'm just so used to seeing the phrase "I seen" on here that I saw it the wrong way. My bad!

    The past tense of bias is biased.

    As in, "I was biased" NOT "I was bias". See that one allllllll the time...
