Family on the internets

.

Have at least a few people in your life jokingly complained: “Even my mom/dad is on Facebook now”? This statement is usually accompanied by brainstorming ways to friend the family member while still keeping as much information from them as possible.  FYI – if you put them on a seperate friend list that never receives your updates, it works quite well. However, don’t fret either way – the Boomer demographic may be creating profiles, but as of yet the generation gap is keeping them at bay when it comes to learning curve; most drop into the chasm of dead profiles within a couple months.

Aside from older generations discovering the wonders of social media, there seems to be a trend when it comes to family on the interwebs beyond the realm of mommy bloggers.  Many digital agers have recently discovered ways to creatively make fun of the family on the interwebs through other means – crowdsourcing and twitter.
