I have a really minimal social media presence (MN does not count!). Facebook purely because of RL clubs, Instagram as a way of contacting my dc and Snapchat because the filters are vaguely amusing. I don't post anything.

My dc's RL friends keep sending me friend/follow requests. I don't accept them. It just doesn't feel appropriate.

Am I being over-cautious? Or is it simply nice that they want to be open with me?

I dont think that what you describe is a minimal social media presence. But maybe I am old fashioned

I don't accept friend requests from my DCs children, accept for 1 or 2 who I've known for years. Mainly because I'm not interested in having all their teenage rubbish on my newsfeed (think duck face selfies, etc!)

I wouldn't worry about offending them by ignoring them, they're only adding you to increase the number of 'friends' they have.

grinI hadn't thought about simply upping their 'friend' count!

I'm sure they're not offended, either.

Stitch I call it minimal because I don't post anything.
