I would ignore the suggestion.  I don’t even understand why there has to be an argument with your sister about this?

Just ignore the request and don’t bring it up with your sister. If she brings it up to you, you can just say “mehh… I’m just adding people I’m really close with on FB now”.   End of convo 🙂

I suppose it boils down to what kind of facebooker you are.

I have 72 “friends”.  53 of these are people from the UK (I now live in the US, so it’s easier to keep in touch with people thru facebook). 5 more are my Fiance and some of his  family members.  The others are people i’m in regular contact with (co-workers and US friends).

I have a few friends who have over 500 “friends” who seem a bit indiscriminate about who they friend.

If you’re like me, it’s fairly easy to say to people, “sorry, i only friend people i know well”.  If you’re more like the latter type, it’ll be harder to explain.

Regardless, however, i would say DON’T FRIEND HER.  She’s your sister’s husband’s mother.  This doesn’t mean she’s related to you.  If you were likely to spend time with her, see her maybe more than once or twice a year, it could get awkward, but if not, do you really want her privy to your life?  Do you need to be privy to hers?

Failing that, have you tried google+ ?

I would just ignore and if she brings it up, tell her the truth, you don’t want to and refuse to get into it past that. Why should there be an argument over this?

You can always add her and then set it so she cant see anything on your page… I have done that to my Future Mother-In-Law who is like your sister Mother-In-Law a CRAZY LADY…
