I don't get it....

I don't get couples' joint facebook pages. At all. What is the point. You'd like if your hubby/bf/gf/so whatever wanted a facebook page, they'd make their own! It makes these idiots look like they can't do anything without their hubbies, bfs, etc. Barf.

    I'm lucky to not know anyone with a joint page, but I agree that it's stupid.

    I 100% agree with you. When I see them, I want to punch them.

    I hate those too!  It's so stupid.  It's not hard to make your own email address and account.

    I didn't even know people did that.  That's weird.

    I know 2 couples that do this. They were incredibly lame before FB, so it doesn't surprise me that they brought their lame to the world wide web.

    I just found out last week (stalking, ahem) that a guy I had a HUGE crush on in high school has a joint page with his wife. My burning teenage love for him immediately died out. I don't get it at ALL.

    Yah, I bet I have out of 200 friends, probably 6 of them have joint "accounts". It's sick. One is my bsc cousin (not the ClaAA one, but the bsc one who punched my dad).

    I see those a lot.  It's so stupid when people do that.

    I do not know anyone like that..  how odd?






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Joint FB accounts do sound creepy...  But how about joint email accounts?

    My cousin and her DH have one.  The address is something like JoeandSue@yahoo...

    I rarely email her because that's just weird.  And I certainly wouldn't write her anything that I wouldn't want him to know.  And no, they're not old people who think of email as a residential mailing address.  They're my age.  Creepy control freak weird :(

    My brother and SIL are like that except until recently I thought it was just his.  Then she started replying to every email I sent my brother even though they clearly said "Dear Julez's brother" NOT "Dear Julez's annoying, overbearing SIL who can't bear to have her H out of her sight for 1 minute even in email form."

    I don't know anyone with the joint FB page, but i do know the couples/family email people.  One is JonesFamily@whatever.com.... and yeah, I never ever email my friend because it's way too weird thinking her husband might read it first.

    I don't get them either.  My cousin has one.  Hate it!

    I just have one, and it surprises me, because they were really non-lame in college.  She's become increasingly lame since graduaton.  Her status updates belong on STFU parents.

    Yeah, I feel the same about joint email. I also know a woman who's email address was her name, her husbands name, and their dogs name. So it was like: sarahjohnandfluffy@...

    Lame.  I'm shocked that people still use email addresses that aren't simply a variation of their name.  I saw an email in the church bulletin on Sunday that was lovemy3kids@ whatever.com.  Really?  What about your husband?

    Never seen that before...odd.

    The email thing, provided by your ISP I can relate to. Our former ISP would only let us have one email address so we made it jaimark@whatever.com but we didn't use it, just for our online bills, etc.

    <div>The scenario you're describing makes sense.  And it's not a bad idea to use a joint email for bills, etc.</div><div>
    </div><div>But when you create a free Hotmail or Gmail account to share, and that's the only way your friends/family can email you, you may be taking the "we are one" thing too far ;)</div>

    I don't get people who have facebook pages for pets.

    Or, whose who actively maintain and post status updates on their deceased spouse's page.  (One of FI's Army buddies was killed in combat, and his wife updates the page.  Freaks FI out from time to time.)
