So whose facebook is it? Well it about killed me when after less than one week on Facebook my new teenager had more friends than I did after being on it nearly three years. I thought it was charming in a "wow what a charmed life" kind of way. What I envied however, she not only has Facebook but also all of these other avenues for social expression and connection. Instagram, snap chat and only that age group knows what else. Goodness...give me Facebook I say....indulge me!
The problem is not that I mind at all that she is on Facebook. No, the problem is I now feel like I am intruding on "someone's space" once she joined. The day her grandfather "friended" well now Facebook is for "y'all people" not "us people" she quips. So I guess soon she will pack up and move on to "younger pastures."
I live for the day we can all, young and old coexist in this new world of social media. Can we all just get along?
