Shocking how many people have told me, quite smugly, that their kids don't have a facebook account. And furthermore, they would never let their kids have a facebook account.
Initially, my response was a vague - well, each to their own.
Laissez faire attitude didn't last.
Couple of weekends ago, I overheard myself saying to someone: if your kids are not on facebook there are only two possibilities: either they are lying to you OR they have no friends. Either way its bad.
How old are these kids you might be wondering? Ranging in age from just learned how to read to applying to college. Doesn't really matter to me though. If you are old enough to want a facebook account my feeling is - take that pacifier out of your mouth and knock yourself out.
To all the people who disagree, I have a piece of advice for you:
Head over to your local cinema and treat yourself to a little movie I like to call Footloose.
You will notice that in the movie, the kids are not allowed to listen to music. Music, the adults believe, is the devil's worship. Music, they believe, is a passing fad. Music, they say, is not necessarily here to stay.
See where I'm going with this?
What used to be called social media, is now called life.
If you don't like it, you should probably go outside and stop the earth from spinning on its axis. Yup, that's right. The earth is round, and it spins. Sorry to be the one to break this to you, but didn't want you to read about it on facebook.
