A friend of DH whom I don't know well but accepted his FB friend request out of politeness has put this post on his wall;
"Good Morning to all.. I need to ask a favour of everyone. Does anyone mind if i post my giving site on their timeline [it's a charity donation/sponsorship page] of if I post it on the wall will everyone share it... as need to promote this page ...."
Am I overreacting by thinking that this is rather rude? I don't want to share his page on my timeline at all - he can ask his FB friends (including me) to donate but I don't want to be associated with asking my friends and family. I guess I'm supposed to either tell him no or ignore and imply that it's fine.
He has been posting (on his own timeline) pleas for people to share and donate pretty much daily for the last week or so anyway. If people heven't shared the link by now they're probably not going to.
I have actually shared charity fundraising that my friends are doing on my own timeline (well, once) because I supported the cause and my friend was doing something really challenging that took a LOT of training and time and effort (a marathon, she is not a recreational runner either, she hates it but was doing it in memory of somone who was a runner).
Thing is, DH's friend isn't doing something I would consider 'sponsoring' , so I won't be sponsoring him myself anyway.
