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 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.

    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.

    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?
    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...

    Yes we're friends! not 'Friends" Love my mom, and she's not the creepy type, We have that mother and daughter yet bestfriend relationship so its smooth :)
  • BILL 2012/04/25 21:52:36
    she is 85 and Doesn't understand computers and we are to far apart for me to help her BUT, my mother doesn't need nor will she ever need any kind of social page like Facebook to be my FRIEND And The First LOVE in my LIFE

  • smartgirl 2012/04/25 21:33:25
    Yes, and we're "friends"
    My mother is elderly and does not go on Facebook so I am fine with being friends with her. If I were a teenager or young adult I probably wouldn't like it so much. Kids do need some privacy.
  • Dalia 2012/04/25 19:42:43

    "Send your mom a Mother's Day poke!"
    No need to really - thanks for the thoughtfulness...

    Whether you're using social media or not if you don't have a good, stable connection with your mom then who's to say that having her added online makes things better? It's all about how well the communication level is with your family; that's what matters more than just knowing the people in your contacts.

    If you're both living in the same house and you find yourself chatting more online with your mum than actually seeing eye to eye, face to face, then I believe you're lacking on something more important.
  • l 2012/04/25 17:05:11
    No ,but if she did we would definatly be friends!

    My mom has been deceased since 1980. I don't think she has a FB account.. unless there is FB in heaven.
  • jfrank 2012/04/25 14:54:59
    Yes, and we're "friends"
    Friended with my mom and stepfather. I am 37 and think it's probably more common to not be bothered by it as an adult than if I were younger.

    I'm friends with MY children and grand children and once in a while I let the teenaged grand daughter know her granny is watching.

    Yes, and we're "friends"
    She's 67, has an account and uses it quite regularly. I signed her up, so yes, we're 'friends'. I have no reason to be ashamed of her or anything. She's wonderful.
