Are people commonly FB friends with people under age? I made an active decision to not friend anyone under 18 as I will occasionally swear or mention adult topics and I dont want the drama of some parent being pissed at me for dropping an F-bomb on some sweet little innocent 17yo snowflake. I have fairly few teenagers in the extend family so it does not come up that much but parents seen to have understood when it has.
My rule is no crossing of the generations. Cousins, yes. Aunts, Uncles, parents, no. I just get too much second-hand embarassment from watching friend's parents comment inanely on every.single.post.
It goes down too, I have denied all requests from cousins' children. They would probably feel the second-hand embarrassment for the stuff I post, and I don't want to have a window into their world if they are not comfortable friending their parents, because might I feel obliged to tell the parents if I saw anything untoward? Just an easy way out of that.
I fully admit I'm mean though. My mother thinks this is a personal slight. Do not care. I use social media for fun, not out of obligation.
