Wow, I'm always suprised when people feel so strongly about facebook! Like, it's a page on a screen. When DH & I deactivated FB a few years ago,his family cried, lol. For reals. Like we died or something. We were like 'It's ok, we're still here'.
I think feminism has nothing to do with it. How do you feel if people have joint email addresses? Does that fire people up equally? What about joint postal addresses? A lot of people are just not heavily invested in *facebook* as an important part of their identity. For a lot of people, it's a basic communication tool, just like an email address or even postal address. Not a symbol of their relationship and how controlling it may or may not be.

We have a joint one but it's under DP names only as I was being severely talked by a couple crazy arsed people (related) and they didn't know my DP's name, haven't had any issues since i shut mine down.

I did have friends who shared an account for years but they have since created their own accounts. Never thought anything of it.
They seem perfectly happy and there are no control issues there that I can see, they are an awesome, fun, outgoing, crazy couple with 2 beautiful girls. I assume they shared an account because one of them couldn't be bothered being active on FB but they wanted to be tagged in pictures, particularly as the non-active partner had a very active mum on FB who was constantly posting pics of the girls. I can see how people in a similar situation would want to share.
Definitely not for me though. I personally wouldn't do it, because for the reasons people have stated above - private pregnancy groups, messenger etc, not that I have anything at all to hide.. But it's nice to have my own "space".

I only had one friend in FB with a joint account. Didn't burger me in the slightest. They are a great couple with no control issues etc. initially she was the only one who had an account but they both looked at it... Then he started 'liking' things and she was embarrassed cos it looked like it was her. So she changed it to joint and he puts a sunnies emoji at the end of any comments he makes. Works well. They are in their late 50s and mainly use it to keep up with family.
I'm not sure why people are so judgmental about what others do on Facebook.

I barely use it and couldn't care enough about FB to set up my own page. I use DHs FB on the odd occasion and I suppose it's joint in a way. I never though it was an issue or anyone cared.

Look, I really don't care *that* much. I'm simply answering the question in this thread and my reasons why I'm not a fan. I'm surprised others feel so strongly about that too lol If people want to have joint accounts go for it. I just explained my reasons why in some cases I'm not a fan.

I have never given it a second thought, to be honest. I don't really give a hoot if others want joint Facebook pages. Would never happen for us, DP couldn't handle sharing a page with me!

I find that frustrating too. Other than that, the people I know that have joint accounts are say one at home and partner doesn't use computers at work, I've kind of always assumed they just have one computer between them and can't be bothered to switch between accounts. Although I'm sure they both have phones etc. clearly I haven't given it much though, only in the way it affects me - annoyed that I don't know who's commenting lol.
I've always been one to write stories from the point of view of my dog or one of my particular ducks (Mr Duck Norris), people seem to find it hilarious and kept asking me to start a blog for them, so I gave the dog his own FB page to share his own wisdom IHFO (in his furry opinion) I use it as a bit of a joke and a laugh. The dog does keep threatening to unfriend me though, and I've got some strange transactions on my credit card for 15 love boats...I suspect the duck..
