If your mom was born in the 1950’s and is relatively new to the concept of social media, you may want to reconsider friending her on Facebook. Here’s why:
1. She will always read too much into your status update or things that you have shared; that will have her bombarding you with messages on facebook, whatsapp and smses, demanding to know if you are alright and enquiring what is wrong.
2. She either shares or comments on your EVERY status.
3. She knows exactly what you and your friends did the night before, because one of your friends have tagged you in on the photos. This ultimately leads to her bombarding you with messages on facebook, whatsapp and smses demanding to know “what the hell you were thinking?”
4. She tags you in every photo or quote about “if you love your son or daughter…”
5. She knows exactly who your friends are and what they do, which leads to a barrage of questions when you speak about a friend in her company whom she may not like (and whom she has not met but only seen on Facebook).
6. She knows more about your life now than when you were actually living at home.
7. She has one extra way of contacting you when her smses, whatsapp, calls to cell phone and to work are unanswered.
8.There are just some things your mother does not need to know.
9. You cannot hide from your mother!
10. A mother’s love is supposed to be unconditional, do you really want to test that theory?
If your mother was born in the late 1980’s and is well aware of social media, you may also want to reconsider friending her on Facebook. Why? You ask. It’s simple. You really don’t want your friend to see those baby pictures of you!
