Making everyone your brother / sister on Facebook

Some youngsters are unfortunately turning Facebook into a joke. To name a few : Stupid quizzes, unlimited tags on nonsense pictures, comments on pictures turning into chat sessions.

A few days ago, I noticed another new entry into the list mentioned above.

Family members


Since its implementation on Mother’s Day 2009, I find that there has been much abuse, mainly by college students. Indeed, the largest social networking site added a feature enabling users to list their family members right onto their profile.

I believe that some people do not really grasp the word “family” and very often get confused between family and friend.

I have even come across some profiles listing over 5 parents and over 10 siblings while some 15 year old teens have tens of children! pff!


Come on young kids, Facebook asked you to list your family, not your entire friend list!

Do you feel targeted by this post? Yes?

Curse me but I do hope that the next year brings some wisdom and sense into your life!!!

This is the last post of 2009. Happy New Year 2010 once again! Cheers!

  1. No, I don’t feel targeted. 😛

    I think it’s up to people to chose what they do with their account. Facebook added the feature, and the users might as well do whatever the hell they want with it since their are no official rules and regulations concerning this. I’d rather be added as a ‘brother'(or ‘father’ :P) by an esteemed friend than be tagged into “Fan Check Photos” or those stupid Christmas/Eid/Divali/New Year/[Insert festival here] that encourage what I call notification spam.. 😉

  3. You are right Yash… It was better when facebook restricted only people over 18 years to register before… In fact they did have some sense to have only sensible people on facebook 😛 Now just anyone can register on facebook to make it a joke 😦 Pfft… Guess facebook really needs to review it’s ToS acceptance 😛

  7. It is a pity that they do not use the facility correctly. I am especially thinking about people who use Facebook to trace their lost family members. If Facebook options are used correctly they can be a useful search tool for others.
