Does Your Mom Have a Facebook Account?

Mother's Day is almost here, and to celebrate we wanted to give mothers a chance to discuss familial Facebooking, and how social media plays into parenting. Should moms "friend" their kids on Facebook? Do their kids even want to be friended? What do people really think about parents who make Facebook pages for their babies? Do families hide things from each other online? And don't forget, we have demographic breakdowns to shed more light on the answers to those questions.

So whether you're a mom yourself, or simply have a mom, we want to know your thoughts on how social media relates to parenting. When you have a chance, be sure to take our 10-question Mothers and Social Media Quick Poll. And don't forget to send your mom a Mother's Day poke!

    My mom has been deceased since 1980. I don't think she has a FB account.. unless there is FB in heaven.

    At 90 years of age my mum is on F.B. to me it seems weird to see, a few years ago she did not want to know, I think my brother putting all her music on a lap-top for her made the difference, but she is still learning, I wonder if this is a record.

    My Mother passed away 42 years ago. I would give anything if she had a FB account. My daughter has a FB account and we are friends on there. So far, so good.

    My mom died over a decade ago. I will not have a Facebook account, if I want my personal information sold off, I'll do it myself and charge for it.

    My Mother even at the ripe old age of 88 would not be foolish enough to have anything to do with Butt Book.

    You can't FB after you die.

    Yes, and we're "friends"
    I'm "friends" with my mom, my father in law, and my son. My own father unfriended me when I caught him in a lie and called him on it on my page.
  • ladyvoldemort 5 days ago

    And yes, I chose to add her. When I was in high school, some people I know had to add their parents in order to have a Facebook account.
  • belle 5 days ago
    no but my daughter in law does and she uses it more than her daughters uses theirs.
    But then she is a trophy wife and must keep up with all the other trophy wives.

  • Ang 7 days ago (edited)
    she's 75, she doesn't even understand her cellphone, she calls me & when it goes to voicemail, she says Ang you there, it's your mom & so forth for about 3-5 minutes like she does on my answering machine, it's kinda funny sometimes but I've explained to her a million times I can't hear her but then she forgets & does it again so no, she's not interested in Facebook nor does she have a computer to do so anyway but if she were, we would definitely be friends!

    MY Mom is 89 and has no clue what Facebook is. I have my own Facebook account and my son is a "friend". My daughter doesn't have an account.
  • wahrheit 2012/05/02 12:19:47
    I don't use face book. My mother doesn't use face book. My kids don't use face book. Social media is essentially the cigarette of this age-- people think it is necessary, fun, cool. In fact, it is none of those things. Best case, face book is neutral. Worst case, it is destructive.

  • Michael 2012/04/26 13:13:02
    Yes, but we're not "friends"
    She's got a facebook as does most of my family, but I don't simply because the people truly important to me I can call any day and viceversa. The other details of my life I refuse to post online unless it anonymous like my Tumblr, which I don't use much these days; I like handwriting in a paper journal
  • Ameera 2012/04/26 09:55:37

    my mum is into tech stuff... she knew how to use a computer before i even knew what it was
  • MissNovemberTuesday 2012/04/26 07:07:51
    Yes, and we're "friends"
    I just make sure to set my privacy settings so she can't read posts by my friends (Who knows WHAT those degenerates may say? LOL!), posts that are automatic from outside connections, and many of my personal posts to my Timeline. Also many photo albums are not visible to her or family due to the nature of the comments I know will be made on them.
  • Call me Mark willya? 2012/04/26 03:55:56
    Call me Mark willya?
    Several reasons, #1 being she's deceased, #2 being she was barely computer literate enough to play solitaire, and number three she listened to me when I told her that facebook is the internet version of Jerry Springer right down to the fights that get started but can't ever happen because people are in different states/countries/planes of existence. I don't have a facebook page and I never will, my life is my own business, if I want someone to know something I'll call them or even better visit them face to face and tell them, you know, like they're a real person or something...
