Grown Ups on Facebook
Recently I saw this Los Angeles Times article on how parents on Facebook are embarrassing their kids by the comments and posts that they make. According to this article, nearly 1/3 of teenagers would like to “unfriend” their parents.
To be honest, I’m a bit surprised it’s not higher.
But it does make me wonder about adult etiquette on teenagers’ Facebook. I tend to be more on the conservative side, not posting very often on kids’ pages and letting kids take initiative in friending me. I know it’s a great way to build relationships with kids, but I want to be sensitive to kids’ boundaries and needs for privacy. I’m 40 and I don’t need anything else that makes me a “weird adult”.
How about you? What is your Facebook etiquette with teenagers - your own or others?
