    Neither of them have it, but the other day my dad was like; "If i made a facebook would you be my friend?" And I said no, just to be controversial, although I probably would!!

    I had my step mum on limited profile. Then she messaged me and said "I'm going to remove you from my friends, as lets face it, this is rather one sided". I have my uncle and his wife and my cousins on limited profile.

    No. She added me. She's on limited profile.
    Good un. Forgot about the ability to do that, I might use that against my parents if they ever join facebook and add me.
    Or I'll just decline :lol:

    Nope, and I don't think I will. I already need to keep most of my cousins from my dad's side of the family on limited profile because if I let them see my full profile there would be a lot of awkward conversations that would need to take place, and also one of my uncles is violently homophobic.

    Nobody (apart from one person up there, talking about his homophobic uncle) is saying why they don't want their parents on facebook... I'm genuinely curious about this, why is it?

    People post stuff on facebook that they don't want their parents to find out.
    The following happened to a friend of mine:
    She was on a phone contract, went abroad and racked up a £300 phone bill. The account was set-up so that any money was taken out of her parents' account, hassel free.
    She posted about it on facebook; needless to say, her parents found out, and weren't too happy!

    I've got all of my aunts and uncles and even my grandma on fb (although gma is on limited viewing since she misinterpreted a friends post and went around telling everyone I'd been raped :facepalm:)

    My mum tried to add me, and my brother has her added, but I've told her no. She doesn't need me on fb considering we live together. When I go to uni, I'll consider putting her on a limited profile...

    And she really thinks that her parents aren't going to notice a £300 phone bill? It was her responsibility, if she's going to rack up that much of a phone bill, that her parents pay for, she should be prepared to face consequences - that's not facebook, or having her parents on facebook, it's her own stupidity that got her into trouble.

    It just seems a bit immature to not let your parents on facebook, but I do want to hear reasons because as I've said, I'm genuinely interested in why people don't, hence why I asked.

    I have added my Dad (my mum doesn't use facebook) I don't see why you wouldn't add your family on facebook I have most of my family on mine now.
    There are things on my facebook I would prefer my family not to see ;D

    That's like inviting my family into my social life which I try my best to do the opposite :-P

    Can someone tell me if its possible to block my parents seeing certain friends profiles, all I want to do is block my parents seeing where some are as I have some in the other end of the country and if they put "oh we had a great night with you last night, lets get pissed again soon" my parents would assume I have gone down there and give me a bit of a questioning, just because in the past I did a few last minute moves to other end of country without telling my parents.
