Like most of us, I have a Facebook page that I use for keeping in touch with various people in my life, everyone from folks I went to elementary/junior high/high school with, to my sister and her brood, to my biological father (whom I do not know reeeeeeeally well, but we have developed something of a relationship over the years--long story, didn't meet him until I was in my 20s), extended relatives, coworkers and former coworkers and other professional contacts, my step-dad's family, etc. I have one friend whom I do not know reeeeeeeeeally well and have not seen in almost 2 years, but we were in a support group together before & after our bariatric surgeries, and we keep in touch with each other on FB & I think the world of her. I noticed tonight that my biological father is posting on her comments, so I looked on his friends list, and he "friended" her. Then I started looking deeper... he has "friended" at least 4 people from my friends list, people he would never, ever otherwise talk to and know (he lives in a different state & I have only actually met him in person a handful of times, maybe 4 or 5). I don't really know my dad all that well and feel somewhat violated by his actions (he has a serious problem with boundaries). I don't wanna have to change my security settings so that even my friends can't see my other friends (because some of us are pretty frequently chatty with each other in groups and posts on FB... you know how it is sometimes). I mean, this is, after all, my dad. I know on some level, he's trying to get closer to me by getting to know my friends and other people in my life, but REALLY, Dad, friending my facebook buddies ??? Without discussing it with me?? (BTW, it's not like I'm a teenager upset about their dad looking into their business... I'm almost 49 years old, and my dad's in his 70s.) I was on FB earlier and started looking around and discovered, much to my dismay, that a couple of people I know that do not in any shape, way, or form have any connection to each other have "friended" each other from my Facebook list. It's disconcerting when acquaintances "friend" my family members and and professional contacts. I dunno why it's bugging me so much, but it is... especially my father. I want to get to know my dad, too, but I don't want to do so by invading his space or talking to HIS friends behind his back on a social networking site. And what's the deal with my friends saying "ok" when he sends them friend requests? I'm gonna be talking to my dad tomorrow about this. If got a friend request from the father of someone on my friend list I'm not particularly close with, I'd talk to that person first and say, "What's with your dad friending me on Facebook?" I guess I'm going to be changing my group settings on FB. Just had to vent a li'l steam.
