If you're all about Facebook, then you probably update your status multiple times a day, upload tons of pics and comment back and forth with your friends like it's no big deal. But do you let your parents in on your online activities? Over half of the teens questioned in a new survey said yes.

Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions surveyed a group of high school students whose parents are on Facebook, and 56 percent of the teens said that their moms and dads have full access to their accounts. On the other hand, thirty-four percent of the students surveyed said they are not "friends" with their parents.

"In a Facebook era, the online arena serves as a new channel for parents to keep tabs on what and how their kids are doing, and it's notable that a sizable percentage of today's teens seem comfortable with that dynamic," Justin Serrano, Senior Vice President, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions said.
The survey didn't go into details, so we wonder: were the teens were forced to add their parents as friends or did they do it on their own? Do you guys let your parents check out your Facebook pages, or do you keep that stuff private from them? %Poll-47722%
