Long gone are the days of Facebook being a student-only club. If you’re a student there’s a good chance your parents have got a Facebook account too. But when it comes to friending your mum or dad, do you accept or decline?
Let me take you back to my student years…..it was a fun, crazy, rollercoaster ride of an experience. Facebook played an important and sometimes obsessive role for keeping in touch with friends back home and connecting with new buddies on my course. Never at any point have I even thought about adding my parents on Facebook, a point I made very clear to them! Years have passed and I still don’t feel like I want to add my mum or dad as a friend, even though they have sent a request many times!
How do you feel about this? 92% of parents who use social media are Facebook friends with their kids. Am I the odd one out? Anyway, 1 in 3 teens says they are embarrassed by parents comments.
