De-friend her…I am only half-way joking. I have my FIs sister as a friend on FB and if she ever were to comment on something I posted abt my Fiance with a negative/snarky comment…she would be de-friended.

change your settings.  now you can make your posts only viewable to certain groups of people.  i have lots of random family (like aunts, parents, old bosses) and i dont want them to see all my posts or pics.

Agreed with FutureMrsMorgan. I have a group set up called “no status” and it is all the people I don’t want to see my status messages.

I probably wouldn’t say anything to you, but if you were publicly saying something negative about my brother, I wouldn’t think highly of it. I can see her point of view on that. I would never make that kind of post on FB. I just don’t feel a need to air my laundry that way.

But everyone is right, just change the settings so she can’t see your updates.

I was really annoyed that my mother in law asked to be my friend.  My mother thinks my FB is for me and my friends only.  My mother respects my privacy and personal space.   My Mother-In-Law on the the other hand will email me regarding posts I have written.  I now feel like I need to sensor myself or be worried if a photo of me in a short skirt or drunk is posted.  I feel like there should be boundaries between parents and their adult children.   I did not know I could block certain people from viewing my posts and photos.  Wonderful!

I would be super pissed off if one of my Fis siblings did that, they don’t realise that they often see another side of SO and wear rose coloured glasses, seriously limit what she can see.

Personally, I think the best solution would be to not post negative status updates about your fi… would you mind if he did the same to you, and used the fairly public forum of Facebook to complain about you?

This is one reason why I don’t FB.

I think my husband would be incredibly hurt if I publically announced he was driving me crazy.  I’d definately be hurt if he did that to me.  I don’t have any brothers but if one of my sisters boyfriends were to post something negative about them, I think the first time or two I’d laugh it off, after that, I’d start getting pissy about it.  We can be a bit defensive of one another, and I know my sisters would be very pissy at my husband if he were to do something like that to me.  I know you don’t mean anything bad, but different families have different things they consider acceptable, and in my family this would be a big no.

My Future Sister-In-Law just asks me why I’m annoyed and if it’s Fiance she’s normally very chill (I.e. Yeah boys are stupid sometimes) about it. = ) I’m lucky, I guess.

Sorry your SIL is a pain. = (

Is it really necessary to post comments like that on FB? its FB not really the place to write your annoyed with your husband or any other personal matter. I think its a little immature and if it upsets her just dont do it. Its that simple.
