Moms and dads are inescapable on social media these days, particularly parents on Facebook. Whether it’s your mom posting embarrassing old baby photos, or your former college roommate updating about her newborn, parents are monopolizing your newsfeed.

But no matter who you are, it’s almost certain that the parents in your life fit into one of these categories.

From dads who won’t put up with your whiny statuses to moms with the cheesiest puns imaginable, your family is sure to fall somewhere in-between.

1. The All-Caps Dad

He wants to show you how absolutely thrilled he is to be connecting with you, one caps-locked post at a time.

2. The Internet Newcomer

It’s exciting that she’s finally on Facebook, but you’ll have to fill her in on what’s going on with the rest of the Internet.

3. The Matchmaker Dad

It’s similar to having a profile, except your dad is the matchmaker and you probably aren’t getting that date.

4. The Stressed New Parent

She needs a place to vent, and that place is your newsfeed. If you’re feeling sympathetic, you can always send this stressed parent a bottle of wine through Facebook Gifts.

5. The TMI Dad

Really, Dad?

6. Google Dad

He’s not great with Google, but he’s got status updates down pat.

7. Zinger Mom

Epic Mom

What’s worse than getting burned by your mom? Getting publicly burned by your mom on Facebook. Twice.

8. The Pun-Loving Mom

You pretend to be embarrassed, but deep down you secretly love and appreciate all her punny wall posts.

9. The Persistent Poker

Mom loves the “poke” button so much that you don’t have the heart to tell her it’s been the creepiest Facebook feature since 2007.

10. The Narc Dad

He knows what you’re up to, and rest assured, he’s not happy about it.

11. Tough Love Dad

Sometimes you need to be put in your place on the most public forum possible. That’s where your dad comes in.

12. The LOL Mom

No matter how many times you remind her, she will always think LOL stands for “Lots of Love.”

13. Wisdom Grandma

My friend's grandma commented on her status.

She’s always prepared with a wise and gentle response to your whiny status updates.

14. The Grandpa Who’s Had It With Facebook

You’ll have to help him out with this one.

  1. Hi, ma’am. Hahaha, kwela yung LOL-mom! Not to sound insensitive, but that’s the first time I found the use of LOL in a sentence cool. Or at least tolerable.

    • Hi Amelie. So you’re also uncomfortable about LOL as laughing out loud? I was and would feel slightly offended for a long time whenever I’d get a LOL comment. I have since learned to live with it. Cute nga ang lots of love. 🙂

      • But living with it is an uphill battle po, no? 🙂 I strongly dislike LOL, andami kong tawa/gutom, pag may time. But I think I’ll end my letters/posts with LOL from now on. LOL, Ams. 😉

    • Hi TPS. Was about to share this in FB and in fact tagged you in the “draft” – but I decided to post it here instead so son has one reason less to say I fall under some or all of the categories in this list. You still have a few years to go before Sam declares you to be a parent guilty of any of these “crimes”.
