Should You Accept Your Parent’s Facebook Friend Request [Flowchart]

Only a few days ago, I came across this interesting flowchart on Mashable. The main idea of the flowchart is to guide Facebook users about whether or not they should accept their parents’ friend requests based on certain criteria.

Since we are very intrigued by the many ways social media affect parenting, we thought we’d share the flowchart here in order to lightly point out the dilemma parents might be facing due to the infamous Facebook!

Accept or Not... That is the Question!

You can read more about this topic here: When Mom or Dad Asks to Be Facebook Friends.

As parents and as offspring, what do you think of this flowchart? Do you think it can help build the relationship between parents and their children or wreck it? Do you agree that Facebook users should follow it?

Looking forward to your comments down below…
