Two of my sister in laws drive me crazy with Facebook.

I agree with you. Some people drive me crazy tracking their every move on facebook.

3togetready explained it well. Just unsubscribe from their updates. You can still see things on their pages if you go to their home page and they can see yours. I don't recommend "unfriending" them because of the drama that may follow.

I've unsubscribed from a few people, the ones that use FB like twitter to tell too many details all day long or who play games like Farmville where every activity goes out as a status update. I occasionally check their home pages to see if anything important is going on with them, they don't seem to know that I'm not following their every move!

My SILs are the same way. Just go to their page and click unsusubsribe like the PP said, but make sure you unsubscribe from all posts. I tried checking the "important updates only", and still was able to get all of their posts in my news feed since they were posting several times a day. I'm also listed as "unavailable to chat", so it doesn't show up when I'm online.

I agree with you that fb usually causes more headaches than it's worth.

I so understand that - my own sister jokes about seeing all these pictures of my IL's and SIL's family and the joke is now....I didn't see you in the pictures (because we aren't invited) and now even when we are - don't go because of the ridiculous favortism that continues on.
