My Dad & some of his friends are already on Facebook & he's my friend on Facebook. There's nothing wrong with that. He's well over Fifty(50) & has been (& still is ) married for over 27 years. He's one of the few nigerian men of his age who spend alot of their time usefully on the internet for research, information & business. My dad could be up till 2am on the internet. My mum is catching up, but it hard resisting sleep, lol!!

Some people are just plain religious to think that somebody on facebook is only there to look for mistresses. Many people have made lifetime business links & contacts through facebook. So it depends on what you use it for. There are many people who have mature minds!!!

My Mom: NO, she makes a fuss out of everything. She'll tear me to pieces when she sees that i've set my religious views to buddhist. And i've got too many naughty friends.

My Dad: He can't boot a system but i'll be glad to add him. I can use FB to blackmail him. The bad man is always looking for young fu, uck toys.

Exchanging pleasantries with your mom's boyfriend is a bad idea.

My mum & I are friends on FB. I tried delaying it for a while, but eventually accepted her request. She monitors me quite a lot, I can tell. She's doesn't comment on my posts or write on my wall, but she sends me msgs and gives me advice which is quite cool.

The only disadvantage is that I feel bad for her, cos you know how it is on FB, you upload "crazy" pictures, or pple tag you, and it looks crazy to her, but it's normal to me and my friends, but she starts to worry. "Hope you're not going overboard, hope you have a timetable, hope you're not too busy, hope you're attending fellowship", etc.

But, it's not that bad.

@ poster, you never ask whether me i dey do the thing sef.

there is way too much personal info on the web.

the less sites i belong to the better.

you just can't be careful enough.

if i am looking for a long lost friend, i ask someone who is on FB to send him a message giving him my email add.

if no one to help me do that, i forget it.

somehow you will find the friend or someone who knows him.

In my view FB is too much trouble.

there is email, phone numbers and all that.those are enough for me.

even Nairaland is enough wahala for me.

Adding your parents, uncles or whatever is like inviting your grandma to your best friend poolside party. You won't feel comfortable.

Has it ever occured to you all that a lot of people also do business on facebook. It is not a place for looking for affairs as many kids seem to think. More than 70% of my  business contacts are on facebook. Many serious companies nowadays have facebook accounts. No biggie here , sorry.

it all depends, people who travel around the world and are

always on the move use it to keep in contact and also when they meet

people from other parts of the world or some where from where they live

they use it for update purposes ie most folks in Europe, North america especially and other places where access to the outside it not

a problem. so it depends. Technology has good and bad uses, it all depends

on your motive. I use it to keep in touch with my Aussie (Australian) & kiwi (New Zealand) friends that i met @ work/home since they are always the ones that globe-trot the most!!!

Hmmm since facebook at the moment is the most genuine online

forum where a person can not really hide

who he really is becuase he is using his

real name (and emphasis on real!!!) and real picture

with real friends (not like the 2000 friends you my

have on myspace lol) then i dont see why you should not

add your parents  as friends on facebook.

The whole idea is to add friends that you "know" or

have met in life not people who you have not meet and even

if you add people you have not met, there is always the

prospect that you shall meet them!

So really you should kinda keep your facebook friends and

contacts clean!!!.

I got only family and friends that i have @ heart on my

profile. I keep it real.

Most people leave the hanky-panky to "Myspace", "Bebo" "Black-planet"

etc, you know what i mean and also your Naija social forums which

most girls and guys would not want their parents to see them on for

obvious reasons which we shall not mention here lol!!!

Wish I had been wary from the start! Gosh, my whole life is on fb & I'm sooooo running away in less than 24hrs!

@ Poster: my parents are trying to ban "WE-children" from fb anyway, so I can't imagine adding them!! My mom would just faint. . . Not for any foul, vulgar or dirty reason though; but my activity (ies) is over 100%!!
