My mother joined Facebook a month ago, and I added her as a friend. I honestly didn't care, I don't put anything salacious on the internet to begin with. However, she's started messaging me 3 or 4 times a day. Nothing important, usually silly little things like "I love doughnuts! I think I'll go to the doughnut shop today!" or "I cleaned under the couch! Guess how many hairballs I found?" And yes, she does understand the difference between messages and status updates, which she also updates frequently.
I can not access Facebook at work, and even if I could, I wouldn't waste my time responding to those messages. I check it once a day, typically after she's already gone to bed, and usually only respond to things of substance. Now she's upset that I'm not responding to all these PMs.
How can I convince her to stop or at least lighten up on this?
