    @ dru's sick and tired
    Yeah, you're right. I've managed to survive all seventeen years of my life without getting kidnapped by some pedo on FB, so I guess she did okay(:

    I ended up deleting my Facebook. I couldn't post anything without my dad giving is input or my aunt calling me up to question my latest status. There was just always drama with my family and people deleting and blocking, so I just got rid of it, I don't miss it really.

    I keep all my posts hidden from my parents because they'll always end up commenting on it and embarrassing me, so. Shifty I think about deleting them both sometimes, but I don't want to cause any drama.

    I don't have any problems with my parents being on Facebook, as I was the first one in my class to have one and it made me cool.

    The condition with me having a Facebook was that I was friends with them and that condition still stands. I don't really mind because I only use Facebook to 'like' things and talk to my friend who's at another school.

    My parents being on Tumblr though, I could write a frickin' book on why I don't like that.

    I've never had much of a problem with my parents worrying about my online presence. They were a little iffy when I first got MySpace account and when I was using Bebo, they insisted I added them as friends but I was about 12 and I can see why they did it. They didn't really care when I got a Facebook because they know I'm fairly street-smart and I guess they trusted me not to get into anything I couldn't handle or stuff like that.

    In terms of nowadays, I'm friends with them on Facebook, mainly so that I can get a hold of them in a pinch if my phone buggers up, especially if I'm outwith the area I live in. It makes them feel safer about my personal wellbeing and we've always been fairly liberal with free speech, so I don't worry about what I say on there. I do have a few people in my family on Facebook who I know wouldn't agree with the fact that I curse a lot and publicly put photos of myself drinking on there - I know for a fact that one of my aunts thinks I'm setting a bad example for my younger cousins that I have on there - but if they have a serious issue with it, they can unfriend me. I don't have time to censor everything for my younger relatives when I'm not even that bad.

    My parents don't really bother me.

    It's the extended family (especially my aunts) that are the issue. Like someone who I barely talked to in class posted a photo of our entire class at the end of senior year, and because I was tagged in it my aunt decided to comment "Yvonne is obviously the smartest there!" and share the picture on her profile. First of all, I was by no means the smartest in my class (I think I probably ended up with the worst grade actually) and second, it just bothered me a lot because it was someone who tagged me. I didn't post it. So I don't know what my aunt was thinking. Besides I barely talked to that person or anyone in that class. So I just ended up feeling entirely embarrassed.

    My family tends to be very invasive and for some reason, and as a reserved and private person it just bugs me a lot.

    I don't know, I had to change my settings so that particular aunt would only see things I post, not things others tag me in. Which I should have done before that, probably, but I wasn't expecting that to happen.

    My mom would always get angry at me for swearing on Facebook (even though it's no different to how I talk in real life) Her and my sister also always get annoyed if I unfriend them, which I think is hilarious because it's just Facebook and I barely ever post anything anyway. My dad also used to post on my wall and comment on every status of mine trying to be funny and it was just really annoying. I just accept them so they will get off my back and changed my settings so they can't see what I post.

    The only family member I have on facebook is my mother and that's more I keep her because I don't really feel like having her blowing up my phone with "why'd you delete me" blah blah blah.

    They are more drama than it's worth and unless I'm intending to connect with family on facebook there is no real reason for me to have them. Similarly, I'm not sure ranting on facebook about family problems is a good idea. Just a thought.
