Who NOT To “Friend” on Facebook

​As most of us know, Facebook is used by basically everyone. Your friends and enemies, your parents and grandparents, your aunts and uncles, even peoples pets have their own page. Although most of your friends on Facebook you wouldn’t call your friend in “real life”, that’s beside the point. Keep in mind though, not EVERYONE who tries to add you on this social media site should be actually confirmed.

Although most of your friends on Facebook you wouldn’t call your friend in “real life”, that’s beside the point. Keep in mind though, not EVERYONE who tries to add you on this social media site should be actually confirmed.

There is a reason why there are two choices when you receive a friend request. The “confirm” and “ignore” (or “not now”) buttons allows you to have the freedom to decide who you deem worthy enough to call your Facebook friend. In most cases, if the person inviting you to be friends is somebody that you don’t know, you will deny them. It’s not like its discrimination towards the person; it’s more like exercising your free will on the Internet. But other than the people you deny simply because you have no clue who they are, who else do you think you shouldn’t become friends with?

How about your in-laws? Okay maybe they aren’t your in-laws (yet), but being friends with your significant other on Facebook means it probably isn’t going to be long until their parents send you a Facebook friend request. I think it’s safe to say that there is a time and place for bonding with your in-laws and I don’t think Facebook is one of those places. Even if you think they are the best people in the world, too much interaction with them could bring problems. Allowing them to see photos and read your blogs and comments might not be such a great thing. Not to mention they would have the power to comment and post on your page and we don’t want that now do we?

Aside from your in-laws, it’s certainly NOT a wise decision to search for your first love using the find friend on Facebook feature. Okay, most of us might be a little curious to see how their lives are going these days without us in them, but you don’t want to stir up any past conflicts or even new conflicts with say, their current significant other. In any case, adding past flames is never a good idea! We know there are MANY people out there that we shouldn’t add as our Facebook “friend” for numerous reasons. I hope this was helpful for most of you, unless you just so happen to be a mother-in-law.
