Can I unfriend my in-laws?!
    Make them aquaitences (can't spell and it won't autocorrect!) then put your statuses up as seen by friends except aquaitences?

    I have a few friends on my Facebook who do the duck face pose in photos and we are 25/26 years of age :/
    ...then theres another group of friends who refer to their best friend as their "bestie" and have to update how much they love their "bestie" or what they are currently doing with their "bestie"... I don't know, the term 'bestie' sounds so childish. Might just be me.

    Then I have a cousin who I recently had to delete (second time I have deleted her) who lives overseas & doesn't understand english at all but she tries to be so involved in my life that she adds my friends. Recently I commented on a friends photo (who she isn't friends with) but the photo isn't private so it would have come up on her newsfeed that I commented and I later realised that she had liked the photo!! :/ ..I deleted her & blocked her as I know she will try add me again.

    Theres also a girl who I used to be really good friends with but we have slowly been drifting apart since last year, she has recently lost a lot of weight and her Facebook page consists of a lot of selfies, photos of how she used to look like & then a long paragraph that goes with it saying how she will never go back there again & then a thousand status updates about how people always comment on how healthy & thin she looks. I am actually very happy for her and the change she has accomplished but she is SO FULL OF HERSELF NOW, so much so that when i put up the photo of my ultrasound (basically announcing to my Facebook friends my pregnancy) she didn't congratulate me & all she cared about was who was coming for a night out to farewell her as she has moved to Melbourne. Any rare photo that I have put on Facebook in regards to my pregnancy she has not acknowledged once!!

    I don't post many pics of my 4 month old on my news feed but I do have a secret family and friends group for pics and one for our mothers group. I hope people don't think I am a bad mother because I don't put up a million baby shots or have her in my profile pic.

    Once my bub is born I will be doing the same as you. I actually find it really annoying when new mums post a thousand photos of their child. Its like heres 10 photos of my child in a new outfit from different angles :/.... I think a few photos to see your cute little one is fine, in my opinion.

    A girl I went to school with was posting on FB as she was in an ambulance on the way to hospital after her son had stopped breathing.... What the hell? Who does that.

    A friend of my husbands I keep for pure entertainment value.... Single mother, has more boyfriends than my kids have had hot dinners, post cryptic clues about trying to get knocked up, is always on her last dollar but smokes like a chimney and drinks like a fish. Often I'll get a text from DH saying omg see what she posted today. Bahahahaha it's our daily trash feed
