The Facebook Group “Moms of Kids Who are Embarrassed They Have a Facebook” Starts for Mothers

Geek Out: Would You Deny Your Mom a Friend Request?

It seems like every day, my mom is getting more and more tech savvy. She has her own blog, a TiVo, an iPod, and a Bluetooth earpiece, and I'm pretty sure she actually drooled when she first saw my iPhone 3G. That's why it wasn't exactly surprising when she sent me a Facebook friend request. I chuckled a little at the thought of my mom happily writing on my wall and tagging photos, but I accepted her.

Turns out I may be an anomaly because I just heard about the Facebook group “Moms of Kids Who Are Embarrassed They Have a Facebook Profile," founded by a mother who was unceremoniously rejected by her 12-year-old daughter.


I totally understand why you wouldn't want your mom to see everything you have on your Facebook profile, and then again, I kinda think it's harmless to add your mom — but maybe that's because I'm old and boring that I feel like there's nothing to hide. So tell me, what's your parental social networking policy?
