    Friends with family members on social media?

    Hey everybody!

    Are you friends with your family members on social media, or do you avoid that kind of thing entirely? I'm friends with my brother, but that's it. I don't have any others on there, since I really don't wanna deal with that.

    How about you?

    All the best,
    Matt

    Hey Matt!

    I tend to avoid it!

    Have a good one!

    Hi Matt,

    I'm friend with my dad's wife but no other relatives of mine. Most of my immediate family do not even have social media accounts. I have a lot of old family friends that are more like family to me on Facebook. There's a few of my in-laws on there but I rarely interact with them.

    Hi,

    I am not friends with my family on social media. As much as I like the idea of keeping everyone informed of my life through social media, I also post a lot of political and scientific articles and I think my family would disagree with all of my opinions. I update them about my life in person whenever I see them but I don't need them to know every single one of my posted opinions. My friends enjoy debating on my page so I'll post things that would interest them.

    Have a great day!

    Hey Matt,
    I am pretty much only friends with my family on social media. It's a great way to stay connected to people especially for those who may live further away. Maybe because I'm a bit older than the average user on this site and that I am mom, but family is so important and even more important to me now as a I get older.


    Thanks,
    Morgan

    Hi Matt!

    When I had facebook, I was friends with my immediate and extended family. I wished I wasn't, since my extended family had this pressing need to comment on any picture of me and my boyfriend with all of the reasons we shouldn't be dating (which were stupid and invalid - my relatives are judgmental and they haven't even met him). I'm not bitter or anything. Lol. Anyway, I deleted facebook and I'm much better off for it, imo.

    Hope you all have a great weekend!
