omg my mom joined facebook!!

Susan Mernit posted on this New York Times article: 'omg my mom joined facebook!!' with a quote I simply couldn't resist:

"...unfriend paige right now. im serious. i dont care if they request you. say no. i will be soo mad if you dont unfriend paige right now. actually."

Nothing earth-shattering. Just a well written account of a timeless dynamic in the technological here and now. The article resonates with stories I've heard from friends with kids and made me smile.


Great find. I started reading it and couldn't stop.

To be honest, I'm not sure how I'd feel if my mom was on facebook. It's weird enough with cousins that are still in highschool.

Even though I'm related, it feels a bit creepy so I avoid their day to day happenings.
