Sometimes it’s better to try and fail – and learn – than it is to give a task away. Thus is the case, especially, with Facebook. The social network has spread like fire, furthering its relevance beyond college students and kids. As a matter of fact, the fastest growing demographic on Facebook is retirees age 65 and older.
And each one of these grandparents has one task for the little ones that come over for Thanksgiving dinner: teach me how to use the Facebook. There a couple of problems with this. First, Facebook is engrained within kids nowadays. The concept of “friending,” “posting,” or “liking” is nearly intuitive to the younger generation. While they can whip through their “news feed” in seconds, they might not have the wherewithal to explain it. After all, a great player doesn’t always make the best coach.
