Sometimes, my DH will jump on my fb and like a questionable page. I don't notice til it pops up in my newsfeed. It could even be something like that. Or sometimes you have to like a page to enter a competition. If she has liked the page because they are having sex, then I guess at least it appears they are being careful? I would talk to him but not about the "like" iykwim.
Teens are all about the cool factor. I would put money on it that she liked it coz all the kids are liking it and.it looks cool.

Why only girls?
I was putting myself in the position of the gf's mother and thinking about how I would feel if one of my girls put that on fb. I also wouldn't like it if the boys did it. Either sex I still wouldn't like it. Didn't mean to single out girls
Social media is all about attracting an audience. Hence, a lot of pages, like one run by a condom manufacturer, can be moderately hilarious to follow. I like pages that I have no interest in the product - I just like their page for the posts. You can't tell me that you've never loved an ad on TV for a product that you have no interest in. Social media is no different.
Today, Durex held the Great Embrace at Darling Harbour - an attempt to break the world record for the longest hug. Four Seasons regularly posts funny pictures or memes. I really wouldn't read too much into it.
I wouldn't tell them you've seen anything. At that age kids do silly stuff. I remember if one of my friends got hold of a condom at that age we had a hoot... Blowing them up and letting them Fly over school
- on a side note I can't believe your Boys gf has you as a friend on Facebook. Or is she not a friend and her settings are public? (That's a whole other concern).
Take the opportunity to give your son a generic birds and bees talk.
I don't mean to be rude but I don't think you can make a big deal out of your 14 year old boys gf liking a condom page considering you let her stay over at your house (albeit in a different room). I think that would be a bit hypocritical/ sending mixed messages.
I would have totally tried and get to my bf room in the middle of the night - not even to have sex but make out and cuddles - if my parents had allowed him to stay the night in a different room.
I am not really sure how your son is to be held accountable about his gf activity on FB so not sure what you can say?
I would not talk to him about it. I agree with everyone else, he hasn't done anything wrong and you don't know the reasons behind her liking the page...plus you definitely don't want them to think you are 'spying'.
I also agree that they will find a way to have intercourse if that's what they want (which, let's be honest, most teens do) - I think you just need to educate him about safe sex and have some condoms available somewhere in the house.
If they are having sex, hopefully they are being safe. Don't make the topic taboo. There is one thing worse than them being sexually active OP... them being sexually active and not being safe
