My mom is fairly Facebook illiterate too. My dad doesn’t have one but every time I put up a picture with him in it she tags “Tom’s Photography” thinking its him. She just types in Tom and tags whatever pops up! It’s hikarious. They’re leobably like “who is this crazy guy, it’s not us!”

My little sister recently introdcued my Mom to emoticons and now she uses them, in excess, in every post and text. When OSU beat MSU yesterday I swear there was a string of like ten of those silly little things!

my mom is a whiz with facebook, she bloody loves it, and she was completely computer illiterate 5 years prior. Shes the cutest lil lady ever. When i had facebook [ got rid of it ] she would always comment on my pics of my pets or me n my SO etc. Hilarious, I know there would always be a like from her and a comment that says ‘ too cute’ or you both look great ‘ 

everytime i used to message her on fb when i was in australia i would tell her stories and all id get back is <3 and the thumbs up lolololl

MissComicBook:  Hahahaha, my mom is ridiculous with the emojis too.

She also doesn’t really understand the concept of texting. Instead of just texting something like “What time are we meeting Saturday?”, she’ll text: “TheGridMonster? You there?” and then only after I respond with “Hi mom” does she then ask her question.

My mom texts like she writes letters. It’s really funny.  Example:

Dear Molokoa,

 Do you want supper?

Love, Mom

I’m making chicken. Love, Mom

Can you bring a vegetable? Love, Mom

We had ribs and brisket last night. My SO bought two different tasting BBQ sauces one spicyish tasting and one sweet from two different popular BBQ joints. This morning I put the spicy one on my left overs for work.  I could have swore my BBQ sauce tasted very different so I called her randomly and said my FAV BBQ sauce had a weird taste. My mother then says ” Oh well last night I combined both sauces because you don’t need all those empty bottles in your fridge” 

I just laughed it off what can I do other than say ” Oh my gosh”

I gave my mom my old Iphone and for some reason whenever she texted me, her texts looked something like this:

$#[email protected]^&*#()#))(@*@#%#$#$#^#&#

I asked her a few times what she meant and if she could resend them to me. Her reply was always “oh sweetie, it’s English! I am trying to learn English” (she recently moved to the US from Italy).

This isn’t about my mom, but about my grandma.  She is still figuring out technology, but she has really caught on to e-mail.   However, she doesn’t quite understand it.   After every email, she always used to call us to let us know that she sent it.  Also, there was one night where she needed to send an e-mail, but it was 9:30 at night, so it was too late to send.<br /><br />My grandpa got her an e-reader for Christmas and she wanted to take it on vacation, so she asked me to put 2 books on there for her. Well, her flights alone were a total of 20 hours, so I put about 15 books on there instead, just in case. Well, when I told her that, she just said “oh, but won’t that make it too heavy to carry in my purse?” hahaha

My mom has finally started using her smartphone to full capacity.  She now using the Internet to check the weather and found link regarding public criminal records.  She asked me to find it because she lost it.  Of course she lost it in the middle of 26 Internet tabs.  I think 24 tabs were the weather.  

When she gets a Facebook notification you would think she won the lotto.
