Q: Can my husband add female cousins on his facebook account? And can he kiss his female cousins or shake hands with them?

A.
Strict Hijaab has to be observed between those males and females who can marry each other. This includes cousins. It will be HARAAM to have contact with them via facebook. Kissing them and shaking their hand is also completely Haraam.
