Oh hai my dad just friended me on Facebook.

Um.

*headdesk*

Well, at least I use it as a professional space.

Which is why I am glad my mom is not 'Net-savvy, and my dad does not mess with it much beyond e-mail and the occasional e-bay purchase.

Oh, I can hardly wait to submit stuff there.

My birthmom and birthaunt-in-law are on already. They're more tech-savvy, though.

I thought you might appreciate the site. :) Have fun with it!

Can I tell him about this place?

Dude, I would end you.

*bursting out laughing*

Yeah.

For me, FB is the parent-and-family zone. Here -- with every post f-locked!!! -- is where I live.

Why I keep multiple FBs...one for family and mundanes and the one for the con/adult/freak stuff...

My dad's getting more and more net savvy thanks to his new wife so I'll prob see him on Facebook sooner or later...

I've been toying with that solution.

I started a facebook account because my daughter sent a "poke" to everyone on her e-mail account. She then was appalled that I accepted her friend request. Now the only presence she has on my facebook (she immediately un-friended me) is that I never erased the initial poke. It still makes me smile.

My mother does not -- yet -- have a FB account. But my sister and two of my cousins do. My sister is pretty good about things, and my cousins rarely say much. Turns out my brother also has an account, but I'm not all that fond of him -- and I loathe his wife -- so I haven't friended him.

I was VERY MUCH weirded out, however, when his first wife, who caused SO many problems in the family, had the audacity to want to be my friend... I haven't banned her, but I did ignore the heck right out of her.

It's kind of weird because I don't want my family to know about my LJ and with most of my FB friends being either from LJ or TH, sooner or later, they'll probably be led right here....

Oddly, Facebook is my main contact with extended family members, and LJ is for friends. I don't remember why I went on Myspace, because I seldom use it.

My parents are tech savvy, they always have been and they are why I am. So, it was not a surprise when I received friend requests from them on Facebook.

I then proceeded to ignore those requests until I saw them in person the next week and politely told them I would not be accepting their friend requests because of boundaries.

I figured they would be, but was very glad when they confirmed, that they were cool about this.

Because I have friended people I work with, my Facebook is already a reasonably decorous place. Relatively few revelations of a deeply personal nature. So I'd actually *like* my mom to join Facebook, to share photos & life updates.

My own daughter has friended me on Facebook, not at my urging. I was not going to request it. When I thanked her, she said, "There are two kinds of moms on Facebook: the cool ones and the lame ones. Kids only friend the cool ones."

Of course, she's been on Facebook much longer than me, and therefore probably has filtering down to a science. ;)

There is a reason why my family does not know my Livejournal name- THIS is my personal space. And if they read something on Facebook that they don't like- that's their problem (although I think I confuse them more than anything else because I sometimes update my status with song quotes that are appropriate for my mood). But I did have to fight the urge to NOT accept my Mom's friend request just on principle because she would try to pretend we were closer than we are (and she does do that).

**nod** I'm hoping they don't track me down here. Facebook's much less personal for me...

My mother friended me a few weeks ago, and one sister, one brother, and my niece have been friended there for months.

It was still a bit whoa when she friended me though.

My boyfriend's dad and step-mom both have friended me on Facebook. I thought it strange at first, but now we use it as a fun way to asked each other over for dinner. Thankfully we all get along well and have a great time just chilling out, especially when we get to go to their lake house! :-)
