Our parents do many embarrassing things on the social media. They’re all guilty of at least a few of these Facebook gaffes. Whether they’re tech savvy or have only just mastered signing into Facebook, all parents know exactly how to embarrass us on the social media. Here’s our round-up of the main offenders:
1. Sharing inappropriate posts
Purposely sharing an inappropriate meme from a Facebook page. Or accidentally clicking ‘share’ on some religious/casual racist article that popped up in their news feed. Neither is an ideal situation yet both have a very real risk of happening if you leave Facebook in the hands of your parent!
The ‘share’ button should probably be done away with for anyone over the age of 30 to save all-around embarrassment!
2. Tagging awful photos of you
Everyone loves a #throwbackthursday. But not when it’s a childhood photo of you running around the house naked or pictures from your 15th birthday when you looked like someone who needed a major style check! There’s a reason why we still had dial-up internet back then.
3. Not really understanding how it works
They will accidentally share offensive stuff. They’ll probably also like their own and your most random friend’s statuses. Also, rather than replying to your comment, they’ll try and reply to their email notification about the comment instead. I mean…
4. Any kind of commenting whatsoever
You’ve been tagged in a not-so-flattering photo of yourself from ages ago and everybody forgets about it. Until, out of nowhere, a comment appears: ‘GR8 pic!!!’
Or comments like ‘Lovely’, ‘Nice beta’ etc. etc. on your pictures. If not this then, just a comment on the most random posts on random pages they have no business with.
5. Adding your friends
They literally add ALL your friends and talk to them randomly when bored. Your parents say that they accidentally added them, but you know the truth. They were running out of excuses for commenting on your friends’ status updates, but now that they’re Facebook official, the real embarrassment can begin.
6. Doing literally anything (embarrassing)
Of course, we love our parents. But there’s no getting away from the fact that parents on social media are just plain embarrassing. And some day we will be, too. May as well accept it and keep all our actual posting to twitter and Instagram.
