So, I am on Facebook. I don't say too much, but I keep in touch with old friends and my kids.

But kids have no self-filters.

Here's a copy of my last conversation with my daughter (the mother of my two-year-old grandon):

The fact that my daughter must have sneezed or something and peed her pants? Um, no. I can't say that I was impressed.

It's a brave new world...if I want to communicate with my kids that are in college I have to do it via facebook or Twitter....I also find out everything they have done wrong through the same sources.

So I'm right in that generation where I love Facebook and cannot, despite multiple attempts, understand the appeal of twitter. And I could not agree more about the ridiculousness of what some people post. Although I must say, Yooper, your daughter takes it to a level I have rarely seen.

My daughter shares a lot of information. Sometimes I just reply "EEEEWWWW!!!".

That's one of the side benefits of HBT. You can post drunken ramblings with little chance of exposing your dirty laundry to the world outside of our little (but growing) family.

Here it's almost expected!




Waits for the shart reveals.

I'm not sure what to say here, but I think just acknowledging this post suffices.

Wait until you go on dailymotion.com and facebook simultaneously advertises what you are watching. My mother in law didnt really need to know that I was watching Finnish women playing strip tug of war.

Friggin facebook.

I am also a FB user and not a twitter user but I can understand wanting one platform (FB) where you know your family/coworkers are and can limit what you say and one platform (twitter) where you can keep some anonymity. Otherwise I guess the appeal is being able to follow/talk to others without giving them access to all the FB account info.
