Bare with me, Im writing this with my cell. I just found out that my husband has given his mother access to his facebbok account so that she can play games on fb. According to jim she asked for the info because there is a game that onlu allows a player to play once a day and she wanted to play more, and play other games, maybe even sending game help.to jer own self through the games. Anyway, am I the only one thinking that this is completely strange?? My husband told me that he has nothing to hide from his mom. I told him that its not really that. Its your account. Now.everytime I think of him on fb, I think of him and his mother. Like its his AND her account. Its creepy. There has to be some boundaries, doesnt there? If one of my parents asked me for access to my account I would have told them no way!! And Im not saying that she is nosy, but the fact that she can get curious anytime she wants and look at his messages, conversations…..I dont know. So bees, what do you think? Am I wrong to think this is weird? Im now trying to remember all the things I have wrote my husband on fb and knowing that there is a small chance that his mother has read it. Im glad he told me, because I will never really communicate personal things to him on fb. Thanks bees for hearing me out.

@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.

You see she does have her own account. But I guess there is a game that she plays that will only allow her to play once a day. So she asked her kids and a couple grandkids for access so she can play it more. I still think its creepy. Even if she has access to other family members accounts.

@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.

I would and have for games and I have my mom and aunt fb account password also just so I can send myself lives in candy crush.

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?

Yeah that’s pretty weird.

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.
