    I voted perfect, but if your mom is anything like the rest of my family, she may think it doesn’t apply to her because she’s family.  You may need to take a more direct approach with her.

    Good Luck!

    Honestly I wouldnt have said anything. I wouldve done a few things. I would either block that specific person from posting on my wall or commenting on my stuff, taken my wall down all together or just deleted any comment that person posted.

    I think people should keep things that are too personal off facebook.  I wouldn’t post anything to even suggest that I was fighting with someone on facebook.  Why wouldn’t you just send her a PM or tell her on the phone not to post stuff on your wall?  When I see posts like that I just feel like it’s starting unnecessary drama and is a grab for attention.

    I’d say it’s time to block her and tell her that it’s because she’s posting rude comments. If she’s harassing you about it, explain that you don’t feel comfortable with your mom on your FB.

    Why not talk to her about it, instead of posting something like that on your wall.  Say mom, look I don’t like what you’re doing and if you keep it up I’m blocking you just liek I did my uncle.

    You can block her from posting on your wall.

    I just deleted my facebook, best decision I ever made. 

    I found that it was a venue for people to create unnecessary drama.  People I want to talk to, I talk to in real life and if they say something inappropriate, then I can deal with it right in that moment rather than hours after it’s been said/posted.

    Friends who live long distance I correspond with via private email or telephone, makes things a lot easier and keeps private conversations private.

    @nihilist:  I’ve seriously considered doing this but there are people on there that that’s my only source of getting a hold of them.  So it’s like a draw but I have extreme privacy settings.

    Since this situation is with your mom – I think this is way too passive agressive. I would just talk to her and ask her directly to stop posting certain comments.

    Do you think you should maybe just talk toyour mom directly about this?….if you post this, you will have all your fb friends thinking it is something they said.  I picked “passive aggressive”

    Just give your mom a phone call?

    Edit: Saw you said you have family all over the world so this may be more difficult– I think an email was good, though if you can call it’d be better.  (So much can be misconstrued over the internet!)
