No, I"m Facebook friends with *your* mom.

Young people problems.
 
2013-05-10 10:30:39 AM
Yeah, so? I'm also Facebook friends with my dad, brothers, sisters, step-aunt, step-cousins, step-mom, two brothers-in-law and my youngest sister's fiancé and a cousin out in California.
 
2013-05-10 10:31:29 AM
Stepmom, and considering that's how she first notified me that my dad went into the hospital (the night BEFORE she told me), I kind of have to play along. It's also how I found out they were going to get married last year, but to be fair, she thought he had already told me so that one was on him.

/shakes head
 
2013-05-10 10:36:08 AM
Yeah, so? It's how I share things with my family and they share things with me. Or would you rather I friend no family members and just friend 1200 people I don't know like some people do?
 
2013-05-10 10:49:35 AM
That's the only reason I joined Facebook. Now I can share pics of my kids with their grandma without actually having to talk to her.
 
2013-05-10 10:54:46 AM
So?
 
2013-05-10 11:00:50 AM
Twitter is where the young'uns share there drunkin debauchery stories, just for this reason.

I refuse to friend my mom. She's had a pending friend request sent my way for the better part of a year.

But I like to keep that part of my life separate from my immediate family. So I'm ignoring it.

I'm Craigslist friends with subbys mom.

My Mom is one of the cooler friends on my facebook. *shrug* I guess Subby's Mom is one of those overbearing one's who never let him off the leash and then he married one just like her.....

You know that option where any time anyone tags you you have to approve it first?  Yeah, use it.

What I got when I clicked on the link:

"If you are getting this page, you are using the Internet Explorer browser to reach WTOP.com.
WTOP.com is currently dealing with a malicious cyber attack, which attempts to use our site to infect computers with malware when using the Internet Explorer (IE) browser.
To help protect our website visitors and prevent any further damage, we have blocked access to WTOP.com from Internet Explorer. We believe http://chrome.google.com/">Chrome, http://getfirefox.com/">Firefox and http://www.apple.com/safari">Safari are safe alternatives, and suggest you use one of these browsers to access the WTOP website.
WTOP's sister website, Federal News Radio.com, was also affected by the attack in the same manner.
The cyber attack which compromised our web servers injected code into FederalNewsRadio.com and WTOP.com, redirecting vulnerable browsers to rogue websites which spread the FakeAV malware or a variant of it.
If you have been on either site recently using IE, you should perform a malware scan to check for an infection and get it cleaned..."



I mean, I know IE sucks, but not everyone has a choice. The Army doesn't let me choose my farking browser.

I stopped using Facebook once my mom started.
 
2013-05-10 11:47:23 AM
I fail to see an issue unless you post idiot things on Facebook, in which case your problem is more that you're an idiot and less that your family can see it. For my part,I'm friends my with family just so I can keep tabs on what type of conservative lunacy I'm going to be walking into whenever I go visit.

Nah, too many parents got on there so they moved on to Instagram and Snapchat.

I am Facebook friends with my entire family.  It is very handy for us to keep in touch using it.  I have 12 brothers and 22 nieces and nephews, plus cousins and extended family.  We share pictures and stories and make fun of each other using Facebook.  I love it!  And I love being friends with my entire family.
 
2013-05-10 11:49:54 AM
Nope, my mom is dead, thanks for making me feel bad, Subby.
 
2013-05-10 11:50:12 AM
This is a thing? A concern? Who cares???
 
2013-05-10 11:50:33 AM
WOW, IE exempt, that is pretty funny.

Luckily, I don't have to be on that stupid FB - because I have friends and relatives who ARE and who check the monsters' pages and email/text (heck, even CALL) me when there's something going on I should know about.

/Sometimes it takes a village to check a kid's FB status.

That explains why she won't accept my friend request.

This.  Facebook isn't for real friends.  It's for keeping extended family members and old friends from high school from trying infringe on your real life (which is where you real friends belong).

I was Facebook friends with my little sister who is 15 years my junior. Her mom thinks she's a good kid because she knows her friends and her friends parents, but my sister has shown a lot on Facebook that she would never tell her mom about.

I used to confront my sister about stuff I found on Facebook "Uh... why are you smoking in that picture?" her: "I only smoke when I drink."
I've also had a talk with her when she was about 14 or 15 about responsible drinking, knowing her limits (and the fact that sometimes you think you do, but you really don't until you cross the line).

I think that some parents want to friend their kids on Facebook to get into this semi-secret world, but honestly, it's probably not a good idea. You have to trust that you've raised your kids right and they'll make the right decisions. It's probably a good idea to have another adult you trust "friend" them on Facebook (such as an aunt/uncle/cousin) to keep an eye on them and act as a mediator.

If your close friends don't know as much about you as your mother does, they are not close friends.
 
2013-05-10 11:58:01 AM
Is the mom hot?
 
2013-05-10 11:59:31 AM
If it were my family's insistence on using it, I wouldn't have a Facebook.
 
2013-05-10 12:00:25 PM
I'm 'friends' with lots of my family, including my mom. I don't see it as a problem, even with the family members that are uber-derpy
 
2013-05-10 12:00:25 PM

I have to institute a "no edit, no comment" policy for websites.

This is exactly why Facebook will not be a permanent fixture of American life. People over 30 have worked very hard to make it uncool.
 
2013-05-10 12:07:24 PM
Stuff like this keeps me disinterested in using social networking more, and a little sad that Facebook and Twitter are kings of the internet and Google Plus - which has ways of mitigating a lot of these issues- isn't quite catching on fire yet.

In other news, people don't know how to use filters to stop certain people (like their mom) from seeing things they post to Facebook.  Don't want your mom to comment on something - you can choose to block her from seeing it in the first place.
 
2013-05-10 12:13:22 PM
Facebook is a very public space. If your mom can't see it, it shouldn't be on there. Facebook should not be a cool space.

I treat my Facebook page like I do my resume. I have several and they are carefully targeted for who needs the info. Some info doesn't need to be shared at all.
 
2013-05-10 12:18:41 PM
Subby is apparently about 17, and still thinks his parents are the enemy.

Good luck kiddo.

I got a page saying:  "You are using IE, you loser.  Since cyber attacks are so prevalent, we don't allow that browser to look at anything on our site.  So go away."

I'm paraphrasing of course...  Thing is, my office won't allow me to install a different browser.  It is what it is, I guess.

Oh the horror. You probably grew ip in a household with both parents, shelter, etc. How did you survive? Nobody called CPS for the neglect of raising a child in a non liberal household?!?

Well actually I'm not sure the option even originally existed.  It was one of the good things they added when they f'd up the permissions for the millionth time and made everything public by default.  They accidentally made things better when they made them worse, but you have to opt in.  Facebook is backwards on privacy and security.
