ugh she is crafty!  Sometimes those social networking things are SOOOO helpful looking up people for you and asking if you want to be friends!  Well good luck and like you said there’s always the block.

Put them on a limited profile from the start so they can’t comment on anything, write on your wall, etc. I had to do that with DH’s stepmother after she wrote an inappropriate comment on one of our wedding photos TWICE (I deleted the first one, so she wrote it again). So I took away her commenting abilities 🙂

You can change the settings so they are very limited in what they can see and do on  your page.  The easiest way I have found to do this was to make a group for people you don’t want to have full facebook access and then go into privacy settings and set some custom levels for them.  I have people who can’t see any pictures or read my wall.  If they notice I just mention that it is important to maintain a level of professionalism in anything published online (in case a future employer were to google me) so I limit what is avaliable for viewing.

Well, she should know something is up. I don’t even know you or her and I cant’ stand this woman and her ways.  You’re the bigger person for friending her on FB because I would not have.  Stay strong!

Can you make a new profile under a fake name and only invite your friends?  Otherwise the suggestion by inahat is good to limit what they can do on your page.

@ItalianLady: I wonder if there’s a way to block what she sees too? Like if you could block her seeing your wall (which I think you can do), then you could just tell her you don’t have a wall. Same with comments on photos. I was hoping DH’s stepmother would call me to take up the issue with me because I was going to rip her a new one, but no such luck as of yet…. Christmas should be fun this year though!

@posh_princess: Note to anyone who’s going to do this. Don’t make your “fake persona” and your real name profile friends. DH’s stepmother did that and then tagged herself in a whole bunch of “fake persona” photos. I can never unsee what I saw. *shudder*

There’s a little “lock” in the bottom of everything you post.  You could edit it to include her or not include her.

Or yeah, you could set up a facebook account for work friends only and one for school friends.  There’s nothing wrong with keeping work and personal life private.  She shouldn’t know which one is which.  She will just “happen” to be on the account you hardly use.

Just to remind you that now that she is your friend, she might end up vaguely venting about you on her status like my Mother-In-Law did.  I was sick and tired of getting all pissed about her vague comments, which is why I un-friended her. I honestly don’t need to see that and I don’t need her to be checking in on me or me having the temptation to check her wall. My life has been much more stress free since the un-friending. haha

@ttn133: I never noticed that lock thing before! Cool! So if you hit customize on it, there’s a drop down that says “Make visible to_____________”,  “Hide from _______________”. Awesome!

Oh, yes, you can block people from seeing your post. Like I blocked my boss from seeing my posts.  I certainly don’t want him seeing how often I post statuses on facebook…uhhh yeah during work hours or I don’t want him seeing me vent about work.

Oh, if you do two accounts, make sure you change your photo albums privacy to include just friends.  I think the default is everyone… so even if your not friends with that person you can still see their photos. Good advice, Bakerella, about the tagging.

ETA: oh the one thing I would caution about the lock.. is that you have to do it to a lot of your posts which can get annoying.  Also, there is that fear of thinking you excluded her but accidently didn’t. yeah, not good.  I vote for the two facebook profiles.

Oh, and there are both default and temporary lock features. Like my boss is on a default or permanant exclusion of all of my wall statuses while farmville stuff is on temporary (or when I need it) basis.
