My grandma and my aunt, who is my grandmother’s age, both tried adding me on Facebook.  I nicely sent them an e-mail that said I’d love to keep in touch with you, however, Facebook is not the means in which I am going to do that.  In my family, my immediate family are the “black sheep” and have left-liberal views (heaven forbid) on most topics, while the rest of them are the complete opposite.  I am not about to sensor what I put up or say on the off chance I anger or offend one of them.  They both totally understood and now my grandmother and I e-mail each other every Sunday :  )

I saw this thread and just had to read!!! I would definitely limit what Grandma sees regarding your status updates, etc. 

My grandma doesn’t have a FB account but my Mom gets on there when visiting her so she can see what the family is up to. Her youngest grandson (19) had flat out lied to my grandma about dumping the teenage mother of his daughter….then grandma saw that my cousin had posted “making out” photos w/him and his NEW Girlfriend all over his FB…when she confronted him, he asked how she knew and she said “FB!”  LOL!

I am glad to see you have a change a heart about changing what she can see on your FB. It is really the easiest and most stress free choice..

I have 1/2 my family on the ‘restricted’ list on FB. 



It works well for me, OP, hope it does for you once you set it up!

Unfriend her.  That would probably teach her to limit her reactions in the future.  Or inform her you’re a grown woman old enough to marry.  Maybe she has a problem seeing her little granddaughter growing up and getting married?

You can always block her from some specific posts…go into your privacy settings. You don’t need to do it everytime, but for certain things you think will throw her off..just block them.

Can;t you put her on a limited profile so she can only see what you want her to see? I am not sure if there is an option to only hide some pictures or comments, etc. from one person, but it’s worth looking into.

Seriously, my parents are the same way. There no point in getting upset with her over it, If you know certain things annoys your grandma put her on limited profile.

Change your privacy settings In regards to her. Pretty simple to do, totally worth it to figure out how it works.
