RE: Do your friends/family know about your tulpa?
Only some. I used to tell everyone about Rav when I thought ne was just an imaginary friend, but I don't trust anyone anymore and when I told my friend the other day I think I may have lost her on account of she thinks I'm crazy. ._. I know I can't expect her to understand but... Bleh. -.-

~~Guide to Ravi's pronouns~~

Ne- used like He
Nem- used like Him/Her
Nir- used like His/Her (as in "His friend is fun")
Nirs- used like His/Hers (as in "It is hers")
Nemself- used like Himself/Herself

Does your irl parents know? How open are you?
I want to point out that even writers and artist are not always fond of their family. Mostly because creative writing and character building is not easy to explain. Everyone has their own method it seems like. When you throw Tulpas in the mix it makes it even more complicated.
With that said how open are you to your irl parents? If your parents don't know then who does? 
My answer to the given question
I found out the hard way just how easy family and friends can be divided against each other. It was Face book what would you have expected? I guess I felt like if they were my friends face to face then they would be on Face Book. Seems like very few people have the maturity and the respect to handle the social media such as Face Book.
I came over it and I found that very few people decided to burn bridges with me. I reactivated my Face Book recently. Now I am just mending fences. I know I say this a lot, but I would want no one to have formed their Tulpas under the same conditions that I have. Now I explain to people at gatherings only when I allow them to get to know me. Once they seem to have known me for a while I explain how my world works. I explain it as imaginary friends because it seems like that is the only way that they will understand. 
My memory also sucks, so if they don't say my name or ask me to remind them my name I don't talk about it. I will if they over hear it. I hate the closet. Just because it worked for C. S. Lewis to be in the wardrobe its just too cliche for me to be that way. I will explain it to anyone who is willing to understand and only when they ask or I get to know them.

RE: Does your irl parents know? How open are you?
No one in my family knows. To me, tulpas are much like any other more "serious" subject, such as religion, mental health and sexuality. I don't really feel the need to talk about them or explain them to anyone unless it's to answer a question or contribute to an already on-going conversation. So, I guess I'm not very open? I don't know, if someone asked I might talk about them, but I'm not likely gonna bring them up myself. I might include some of them in my profile on a website if I feel like it, but that's about it. I just don't feel like I have a reason to.

Desmond's happy enough chatting with other hosts and tulpas and doesn't really need anyone outside of the communities to know about his existence. And the rest of my tulpas honestly just couldn't care less, so yeah.

Online, I told a bunch of people. Limited interest. One person asked if aborting a tulpa early on was killing them, one asked how it was even possible a tulpa looked a certain way, two expressed mild curiosity, one tried valiantly and verbosely to diplomatically suggest I should visit a doctor, two said they were afraid to say anything for fear of insulting someone or invoking drama, one said to just effing be careful, but with more words, one asked what a tulpa is, and the large majority completely ignored my revelation.

RE: Do your friends/family know about your tulpa?
Before I even knew what tulpas were I talked about Shadow a lot.. to my mom and to my sister and brother, my best friend at the time made tulpas with me and we had a conjoined wonderland. I spoke to my other friends about Shadow too.
My mom was concerned about my obsession with Shadow and tried to tell me he was an archetype.
But now I know hes a tulpa.

RE: Do your friends/family know about your tulpa?
I toyed with the idea of telling some people close to me, but when I tested the waters by talking about tulpamancy and related things, it was met with extreme hostility so you guys will be the only ones to know. Shade's mortified of the idea too, she says she enjoys being a secret.

Your resident demons. My text will be purple, and my host's, normal.
