    But really why is it an issue?
    I'm sure there are many reasons like my own that really does it matter what people choose to do and why...
    why not just have your own with a pseudonym?

    my maiden name is very unusual. I've never used it on fb, I just had a made up surname instead. it worked well, potential employers could never find me on fb haha.

    I'm now married and have my husband's surname but continue to use my pseudonym surname.

    I don't really buy the I had a stalker/abusive ex therefore need to have a shared fb account. surely if privacy was such an issue, you wouldn't be on fb at all?

    I've noticed the people who tend to have joint accounts are quite bogan. for some reason, I see the joint account thing as a tad bogan-esque.

    Haven't noticed this at all, in fact I often find its people who I would consider opposite to a bogan.

    This is my husband! He has (allegedly) zero interest in social media but my FB account is active on his phone for my benefit. He is constantly checking FB via my account. He reckons it is to watch funny videos etc. I have to laugh when he complains about one of my FB friends if he doesn't like what they post (I have a few people who like to post every time they go to the gym etc). As I always tell him, the answer is very simple... GET YOUR OWN BLOODY FB ACCOUNT!!!

    Yep the ones I normally see on my fb/friends feeds it's always their parents or grandparents and they always say things like "Spot the dog is doing well! Holidaying in the UK at the moment. Did you hear about aunt sue? Send my love to joe bloggs and the kids. Can't wait to see you again! xxxx aunty leslie and uncle joe." ... like it's a mini Christmas letter

    Back in 2007/2008 I didn't think to do that when it asked for first and surname 🏻

    You don't buy the reason? Wow ok... Sorry your not easily "bought"

    How about because it was new and the thing to do after MySpace? And having left that life and all connections behind there was no way for him to know how to look me up otherwise?

    Thanks for the judgement though @turquoisecoast I only added to the thread to give another perspective...

    And to everyone who's admitted to having a shared facebook - thank you for sharing your reasons! It is nice to see people not afraid to admit something that goes a little against the grain.
    Yes, it's a completely made up name. Due to the type of work we do we don't want others that we have been having contact with being able to look up our real names & seeing photos of dd etc. Sorry it's hard to explain without typing out what the Facebook name is. So I did a different name for privacy reasons.

    I'm not bogan. But like anything I realise there are all sorts of persons who have joint accounts just like there are all types that have normal accounts. I'm sure they are just as many 'bogans' with normal accounts too.

    Wow, now I'm really wondering what everyone I know thinks of my Facebook account. I would really hope no one thought too negative, however I know who my real friends are & I'm not interested in trying to impress anyone by trying to be someone I'm not.
