|04:33 pm - One for the LOL WOT files|
My mother has just joined Facebook.
Can't say I saw that one coming.
Current Mood: surprised
All my siblings, both my parents, my uncle and my relatives in Italy are all on Facebook. I keep Facebook fairly generic and keep my lj fairly hidden.
My sister and a bunch of cousins were on Facebook already, as were some of my aunts/uncles. It's not a secret thing, so much as the weirdness of imagining my mother on Facebook.
Oh the weirdest thing about when my mother joined Facebook was having an ex gf, whose English isn't great, made the following first comment on my mother's Facebook:
hey Meg~ welcome to facebook! This is kewl.. we r connected through here too~
N i m your Virginity post~ kewl..
...Okay, I don't think that's something I ever personally want to see related to my family members.
...I just didn't see it coming!
lol, so's mine ... but she doesn't know how to use it. :D But it's how I keep in touch with my brother, two cousins in Canada, another in England, and a globe-trotting uncle.
I communicate with The Sister and assorted cousins via Facebook. Time shall tell of my mother's competence.

I hope your family is better behaved on Facebook than mine. My sisters have already mixed it up with one of my friends.
I try not to think about them before tweeting and for the most part I don't. I just worry one of these days I'll get a tattoo and post pics in no small part to really wind them up.
They're that annoying.
Mine seem to have been pretty well behaved thus far. It helps that I don't think I have too much that I am desperately trying to keep secret.

Secrets aren't an issue. It's that they're of the "I've disagreed with your opinion now you must change your mind" persuasion. :D
Hopefully I won't see too much of that.
My mom was active on Facebook and Twitter before I was. I'm ashamed.
I think my dad is too... so far he hasn't asked me to add him and I haven't.
