Kotaku Off-Topic: Ruh Roh, Mum's On Facebook

Well, the party's over. Mum joined Facebook this week, which means I officially have to dial it back and be nice, also sit up straight, ask to be excused and not clack my teeth on the tines of my fork.

Mum did so reluctantly and only because a group she's involved in set up a Facebook page, and as the multimedia administrator, she's gotta be connected for that. Yeah, yeah, I know I can set up lists controlling who sees what. Just haven't gotten around to it.

And besides, Facebook is like its namesake, you're sort of writing in someone's high school annual. If you know your mum's gonna read it, you're more likely to write nice things for posterity, rather than heat-of-the-moment rants about how everyone in your class sucks. And I need to do more of that anyway.

Here's some subjects for polite conversation:


    I made a group named family and whenever I make mood changes or comments I always make sure I put family as do not show or whatever its called.

    i have my mum on facebook, i still call people c*ntmuffins and stuff.

    How old are you Owen? Remember that you're an adult and she's probably the one that taught you those naughty words (even if indirectly) ;)
