Ok so long story short, DH and i share a facebook page as we hardly use it for anything other than famiy and sharing pics of our kids.

Seen a conversation between MIL and SIL today (logged into MIL facebook account on accident as shes saved it on our laptop settings somehow) anyway open was a conversation window between MIL and SIL(not her daughter) saying how annoying it is us sharing a facebook as i see messages all the time and dont pass them on to Hubby! thats not the case at all i have to nag/pester him to reply to them in the first place if its something i cant anwer!!

how do i tell them if they want him then just bloody well txt or ring his phone not contact him on facebook and then bag me for it when they dont get a reply from him!

Just reply to a fb message " husband never reads these - give him a buzz if you need him" ?

Don't do anything, their relationship is not your responsibility to manage. We are own worst enemies giving others the impression that it's our job to maintain relationships between men and their families. Personally, I can't see the point of a joint fb page if it's only being maintained by one party.

Some people live on fb and really have difficulties understanding that others don't, my major bugbear about social media in general, is the expectation that you're attached to your accounts by the hip and have nothing better to do than check them feverishly.
