    @Earlybride:  Why can’t she start her own account? I have nothing to hide from my parents (I’m friends with them on FB) but I wouldn’t share an account with them. That’s just so weird.

    @somethingaquamarine:  I agree.  She needs her own account, all she needs is an email address. Why does she NEED to have access to his?  If she’s on it all the time she should have her own.

    @Earlybride:  That’s called an addiction. Parents discipline their kids when they play games too much, and I don’t see why an adult needs access to everyone’s accounts to play. That’s way overboard.

    @Earlybride:  My mom plays some of those games and has multiple accounts and sometimes has my dad send her stuff for her games, but she doesn’t have my dad’s password. She asks my dad to do it for her to help her in her games. 

    That sounds weird.

    That’s really weird. I think she’s addicted. In truth, even though I think it’s weird, it’s still your husband’s decision to allow his mother access to his account. There’s nothing really you can do about that aspect of it except tell him it weirds you out.

    No. If she’s got a gaming addiction, why doesn’t MIL just create some more fake profiles? Also, I wouldn’t trust my mother not to click something and get a facebook virus.

    That said, you should never put anything too personal on facebook. Wasn’t there a security mistake a year or so ago where other users could see supposedly private wall-to-wall messages?

    One of my friends does that. His mom is disabled and lives with him, and she plays farmville or whatever on there. It’s weird because it makes me think twice about sending him fb messages when I have to imagine another pair of eyes may also be reading it. Then again, she’s not really snoopy at all, so is that all that different than the fact that I leave myself logged in at home, and FI knows my password, so could see anything on there he wants, except he doesnt want because he’s not a snoop?

    I haven’t lived with my parents for a lonnnnnnnng time, and it would be really weird for me to give them my facebook pw, and I think they’d find it really weird too. I don’t think they’d want it.

    If FH did that I’d unfriend him on facebook… and I ADORE his mom, I just don’t feel comfortable with that. I don’t generally friend a lot of family members… I wouldn’t even friend my own parents if they had it.

    And I’d never do that!! (Give my parents access)

    Hell to the NO!  Husband doesn’t have my password either. But no, I would never allow my patents to have my Facebook password. Not that I’m so wild hooker that they were clueless about but I have boundries. That’s one of them.

    That’s creepy as hell.  My SIL has multiple facebook accounts so that she can play stupid games against herself.  Have her start more accounts – just use a different email address to register.
