    Omg I could never do this!! Secret FB groups/ chat threads with my besties are where I go to complain about DP and/or share my own private, personal info and conversations. Not to say it's stuff I would 'hide' from DP- but my relationships with my girlfriends are separate from my couple identity for SURE!!!

    My friend doesn't have a Facebook account but she logs into her husbands every day to see what's happening. I find that equally nuffy. Just get your own luv!

    I say if it's your facebool, do whatever the hell you want! I don't have a joint account, but also had no account for years too. If it serves the purpose the couple want it to, why doea anyone else have a problem with it?!

    Default Couples who have joint Facebook accounts

    Well I will own up and say yep my DH and I have a joint Facebook account. Call it lame, immature, whatever you like. He is a musician and we signed up solely to help promote/get gigs using Facebook. You need an admin to have a business page and thought it easier to just have a joint account (as our admin/main page). No obsessiveness, cheating etc to be had. I have messenger/Facebook on my phone and I guess manage his business page. He has Facebook on his and rarely looks at it. We only have family and close friends on our page and do use it to share photos of our kids and sometimes tag my girlfriends in funny posts (and they tag me/us).

    I think it's totally valid for older couples that just use it to keep in touch with family, see photos of grandkids, etc. I don't find it particularly lame or sinister.
    What's much weirder is people making separate accounts for their pets and babies

    I have a few friends like this. I do find it odd, but it's their choice. The most annoying thing is, I never know which one is commenting. And when they message they seem to assume I know which one is sending the message? Um I don't! Also I would speak slightly differently when I address a friend as apposed to her husband. Can't really do that with joint accounts - you can't be sure which one will read it.

    I think it just highlights the beauty of social media. That we can use it, participate in it however we choose. For some people that means private messaging friends and for others that means keeping in contact with friends and family or making connections across the world. I think part of the beauty is that you don't have to conform to be able to enjoy social media. So to end my ramble, I'm in the live and let live camp with a pinch of, I don't read too much into it.

    I don't have a problem with it per say, I'm just answering the question of the OP of what our thoughts are of joint accounts.

    As a feminist my concern is whether their partners (or themselves for that matter) are wanting a joint account for possessive or jealous reasons/trust issues. If one person hardly uses FB then why not still have your own account? DH is weird lol he really isn't a huge FB user so rarely is on there. But we still have our own accounts bc I'm not just his wife. I'm me. I want to like my own pages, to have my own 'safe' FB groups. I'm not saying every couple with a joint account are controlling and jealous. I'm just explaining why it can possibly be seen as a negative thing.
