My mom joined Facebook a few months back and things became awkward right away. First she friended all of my friends. And they felt obligated to say yes. Then she became a fan of all of my favorite brands (I mean my mom in J Brand jeans...are you kidding me?). Then, the worst offense occured. My friends and I have an agreement that we don't tag each other in photos. So imagine their shock when my mom started tagging all of us. UGH!
We have not talked openly about her Facebook activities...yet. I have been subtly (read:passive agressively) trying to talk to mom about how Facebook might not be the right fit for her. Once I joined the Gather team the conversation is much easier because I can talk to her about moving to an amazing social site developed with her in mind.
I would love to hear stories from moms with daughters on Facebook. Are you on Facebook too? Have you left Facebook because of potentially embarassing moments with your daughter? Have you decided not to join Facebook to avoid those embarassments?
What are your stories? I would love to hear them.
