The One With My Mom & Facebook

The One With My Mom & Facebook

I have just spent a good part of my once-in-a-while phone conversation with my mom discussing our various Facebook updates. I even taught her how to “unlike” a page.

The surrealism of this left me a little amused. Technology has indeed changed so much of the way we communicate, even across generations continents apart.

Of course I know Facebook (or any other online communication medium) does not replace real life interaction, but it is such an integral part of our social fabric that we would be stupid to ignore it.

I wait with abated breathe for the day when my mom start tweeting.

  1. Yes it doesn't replace real-life interaction, but for people like you and I, who have no choice since we live far away from home and our families, I guess being able to get updated about each others' activities via Facebook, Skype, Email, etc, is the next best thing. :)

    Agreed. I actually find it more engaging to communicate with my family members through Facebook!
