    Its kind of weird I know but the Mrs set up an account for our boxer. We've met some great like-minded people through the dog's account. met up at the beach for the dogs to have a play, coffee etc..
    just got me wondering if anyone on here is as lame as us haha.

    Yes, my dog has a Facebook account. I did not want an account, but needed one to make a Facebook app, so the dog got one instead :) However it might not be as active as your boxer's account.

    I think it's funny that Facebook are so draconian regarding using your real name on Facebook, and yet allow people to setup accounts for their pets.

    My dog doesn't have social media, she doesn't need it.

    Besides she kinda takes up 90% of the posts on my wife or my accounts.

    same for my cats, lol.

    i like it though, means we always have lots of photos. and lots of photos is good when you lose them. found that out when our boy passed. the photos are priceless then.

    Kind defeats the whole purpose of FB if you don't use your real name ;)

    Surely that would be against the terms of service?

    Everyone at my work place has been asking me to setup an instagram for my little sausage dog... Not sure if I should follow through.

    The fact that it is a contract and property cannot enter into a contract.

    Yes. For a few of our animals. My main one is for the dog, who goes around insulting my other friends dogs. (she doesnt like other dogs).

    I think they've relaxed it now because you can use a "name that others often call you" (within reason).

    This is pretty much why we have my dogs insta, if we take any pics of him we like/want to remember we upload it. I haven't been terribly active of late though so thanks for the reminder to take more pics!

    My two cats have a hashtag each but no social media.
