Are you friends with your mother/MIL on Facebook?

I just got a friend request from my mom and I'm not sure what to do. I have nothing secret on Facebook, but to me it seems strange to have my mother oversee my communications with friends. Am I the only one who feels this way?

  • lol.....I keep getting requests from my MIL ..I keep denying them. I only have 2 Aunts on Facebook and that is because they are my 'cool' Aunts. I really don't want any parents on Facebook. I'm not hiding anything either ..I would just like to be able to vent or say something without their opinion!

  • I would not want my mother in law as my facebook friend. I love her to pieces & we actually get along great, but we are, well.....just very different. I am super Liberal, she is super conservative. I am Hindu, & she is a christian (not the open minded I can be every sarcastic, & post funny things that she might not think is funny. I also have many pics that i would rather her not see of SO, me & my friends all partying. There are some certain aspects of my life that i would prefer to keep on the down low. Anyhow, i know how much she gossips. I really don't want her gossiping about me. I hear enough crap from her about my sister in law, i can only imagine what she would say about my footloose & fancy free!

    Now MY mom, yes...totally! We'd be friends!

  • My mom is not a computer person, and does not have internet. If she did, I would put her on my FB friends. I do have my Aunts/Uncles, my mil and my dad's best friend & wife on my friends....
