Hey grams, can I log on now?

So we all know that Facebook is a social networking site that connects people with friends, family, and folks we work with, so on and so forth. We also know that Facebook is one of the top networking sites for college students and young adults.

                WRONG!

While the fastest growing age group by total users is 26-34, the number of women over 55 on Facebook  grew by an astounding 175.3%. Their male counterparts, however, weren’t able to keep up – growing by only 137.8%, but that is still a lot. Now how do I feel about my parents and grand parents being on Facebook? Frustration, foolish, nutty, and the more input I get on this the more I feel like I am not alone. I understand they have friends also but why not contact them on the phone or via email. Fair or not, I don’t want my parents, more or less, grandparents knowing the conversations me and my friends may have.

 One key reason they may feel they need to be on Facebook is because it’s not only a personal networking site but also business and that may be the case but how many of our parents or grandparents are on Facebook talking business. This is so embarrassing. No they are commenting on every picture and questioning on why we were in that picture looking like that; or bringing shame to the family. Now if we were not invading each other’s personal life we would not know. And every chance they get they are online updated there statuses letting the world know what they are thinking. My question is, aren’t you at work? Or don’t you have some news to catch up with?

Technology is growing each day, and something new is being invented as we speak. Facebook is the world’s largest social network, with over 250 million users and 10,000 applications; and the suspension of Facebook is constantly growing. The more it is expressed on the news, throughout our households, and our own personal lives the more people of all ages want to be involved. For anyone over 55 on Facebook, I think it’s more like a mid life crisis.

So you have nothing better else do uh?
