    Wife has four facebook accounts

    Odd, really......as I see it.
    She doesn't belong to any cyber crowd nor depends on it.
    Old school country girl. Farmer and business person.

    Quite bright and self-contained.
    Secure with herself in most every way.

    Yet, over the last couple of years, jumped on this Facebook craze.....but not obsessed. Only one is active and just uses it ti chat with her girly friends and browse Thai happenings, etc.

    Updates her other three periodically.

    Knowing that the largest percentage of Facebook members/users worldwide are Thai, creates wonder in me as to what the real draw is?

    What's the idea behind having 4? Different groups of friends, or splitting up family and friends?

    Surely you can do that inside the one account?

    I've asked on numerous occasions....
    Doesn't know why. Just has them.

    She's kinda weird in a good way.

    Two.

    One is for school and private students only, because I'm too dumb and lazy to blog. I just post informative shit, not socialize.

    Four is excessive. I know a farang who has 4 or 5. Everytime he has an employment/relationship meltdown--which is often--he just opens up a new account.

    Girlfriend has two and has started a third recently. I think she has four

    One (original) just for friends and the other (original) for politics (and friends who think along the same lines) and she has created a new one for her travels that she will not identify herself on.

    Some Thais keep a few accounts because they think they might be (and have been) blocked and they are able to jump to their other facebook account. Some keep a few for playing games.

    The girlfriend says it keeps her informed (sometimes before the news is reported by main news outlets).
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Having the accounts alone isn't that worrying on the grand scale of things. But refusing to explain why and what the point of them is, is a bit strange IMO.

    This all sounds similar to a thread by Peter Pan a month or so ago.

    Not all situations are like that.
    Largely based on myth and legend.

    Up to you in how you handle this but I'm sure you must have doubts or you wouldn't have posted the question? I wouldn't be happy if my wife had 4 FB accounts.

    ^ Would depend on how much time she spent on them for me. I would like a simple answer to my simple question, when I asked her what they were all for though.

    Wouldn't think twice about it, just Thais being Thais, local Doctor [ she ] first thing she asks, is do you have a Facebook account. Since the issue of tablets out here and WiFi at the schools and Government Offices, Facebook has gone viral and who knows what else. Just a new toy the novelty will wear off. Jim

    GF sister has over 30 - plays those stupid farm and cafe games and uses them as neighbours to gain stuff.

    I have 1 that I hardly ever update aside from chucking up news reports that my sheeple mates and relatives really should read.

    My missus has one. Mostly her gang is mothers of our sons friends, plus some family.

    I have one. Some of my junior colleagues insisted I get one and helped me set it up. Fucking thing is apparently all in Thai.....waste of time.

    Some people need professional help.

    Thai women have a habit of doing things without thinking. Opening a new Facebook account on a whim and then just using it occasionally doesn't surprise me at all. Somebody I know well just posts pictures of cats on hers. Dozens of them. I think she has a Facebook page for her cat too but I've got a few thousand other things that are more important to think about.
    I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.

    Sounds perfectly normal to me. People get into that kind of crap nowadays. I know many with more than one account. It's crazy but normal if that makes any sense IMO. It probably took 3 accounts before she got the hang of it anyway.
