    My dad joined Facebook the other day, and friend requested me... I've currently just left it, and he hasn't said anything, hopefully I can pull off an "I don't really use facebook anymore"! xD

    but tbh my rents arent particularly embarrising and send me private messages or phone me rather than writing on my wall. how my nan will be on facebook i dont know as shes only just got it (and yes my nan is my facebook friend....i'd feel bad if i didnt accept)

    She could've searched for you via your email address?

    I spent months using the whole 'I never really go on facebook' excuse before finally accepting my my mum, nana (*sigh* old people just shouldn't use facebook), uncle, great aunty and a string of second cousins. Now my dad keeps trying to add me and I feel harsh leaving it but he'd be trying to be funny and cool and comment on all of my statuses . I'm hoping he'll forget about facebook soon.

    I would advise against adding her to your friends list. Terrible things can happen. See my signature for more information.

    if the email account you've used to sign onto facebook with has ur mum as a contact then it can make reccomendations because it knows who ur email contacts are... hopefully that made some sense :p:

    Something weird like this happened the other day. An old friend who I haven't spoken to in around 4 years who lives in Canada and has no mutual friends suddenly popped up in 'people you might know'. She's not even on my msn contacts or anything so I was like WHUT.

    Maybe she's using Facebook as a tool to get some action. :hubba:

    My mum actually did the same thing! As in... she opened up an account (which is now deactivated) using her maiden name. I think her reasoning was so that not everyone could find her, even though that's partly the purpose of facebook. Maybe she'd prefer to find people and add them herself? I'm annoyed my mum deactivated her account, though. Now she just browses relatives' profiles through my account.
