Parents Take On Social Media Sites

By Maria Luginbill

Suddenly during the course of the last year or two, it seems like just about everyone’s parents have a social media account.

There are many people in their 40s, 50s, and even older ones using sites like Facebook and Twitter these days. This was extremely uncommon just a year or two ago, but things have changed in a very short time period.

I see this as a great thing for the parents of this world. These are people who, up until recently, hadn’t spoken to many of their friends on these sites in years. Now, they can casually keep up with one another through photo albums, status updates, and so much more.

Like me, you may find it entertaining to see parents suddenly becoming enamored with everything these sites have to offer. After all, these sites have been around for years still.

Still, parents should be applauded for the fact that they’re embracing this extremely useful technology. It looks as if the world has finally been sold on the benefits of social media, and this is a great thing.

As for whether or not this trend keeps up, I couldn’t tell you the answer for sure. Still, it looks like social media will be here to stay, as nearly every living generation is now taking advantage of the ease of communication offered through the medium.

The irony of this all couldn’t be more obvious. Facebook was intended for college kids, and now some of their parents are using the service more than they are. Maybe their parents will soon jump aboard the craze? Stranger things have happened.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, simply search a few of the friends lists on your friends’ pages. There’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll see some parents with profiles suddenly in the mix.

In addition to the Internet, the writer also regularly contributes articles about ones like these and also monogrammed baby blankets.
