Imma give you 11, but 16 is way funnier. :)
 
2013-09-29 11:32:13 PM  
These are great!
 
2013-09-29 11:37:36 PM  
If I was young, no way would I use Facebook. I'm in my mid-40s and my mom still embarrasses me.
 
2013-09-29 11:53:27 PM  
Ok, number 4?
BURN!
16 is great.
17 is just evil!
 
2013-09-29 11:58:37 PM  
Yes, 16 was epic.  Remember children, your parents were once young an obnoxious too.
 
2013-09-30 12:15:26 AM  
17.  Pure, unadulterated WIN.

to be fair 6 made me smile too.
this is a virgin.
yup.
yup it is.
 
2013-09-30 01:03:17 AM  
that was a lot funnier than I thought it would be.

When I was in my mid-40s, my parents had been dead for decades.

Love ya mom. No way you could embarrass me!

soooo ladies, who's Doing The Facebook tonight, hey?

Don't friend your farking parents on Facebook. Problem solved.

I did that to my roommate the first time he brought his fiance over.  Pink sheets on his bed, too.

This.
Are these people totally braindead? I haven't had FB for about two years, but when I did I denied every single family member request I got. They eventually got the hint.

Family life and personal life should always remain separate.
 
2013-09-30 02:38:48 AM  
So, 17 variations on #1.

fusillade762: Don't friend your farking parents on Facebook. Problem solved.


This too. I used to tell my parents that it was a generational thing and I wouldn't add anyone over 30. Then some of my friends started to get over 30, and I met some cool people in their 40s and 50s, so now I just tell them flat out that I'm not adding my parents.

Really?
 
2013-09-30 02:44:01 AM  
Some people you shouldnt friend on Facebook.

Your obnoxious aunt or uncle.
Your mom or dad.
Your boss, and that includes anyone on the ladder that is higher than you.
Your insurance agent.
Your bank manager, or anyone that works at the bank you are using because they might get a job as a manager one day.

Any other ideas?
 
2013-09-30 02:44:14 AM  
Or, "17 parents-sure-are-feisty mockups we created that transparently did not remotely happen but will grab a few eyeballs."
 
2013-09-30 02:44:38 AM  
My mom, my sisters, my aunts and my female cousins are all on Facebook. None of the men in my family will go anywhere near Facebook. I don't know if this says more about the women in my family or the men, but there you go.
 
2013-09-30 02:45:52 AM  
Seventeen reasons all boiling down to one thing, because your parents are on it.

I'm sure the kids that were told "let me see your Facebook or you're grounded" totally had this sentiment to begin with.

Everyone.

Eventually, you come to the conclusion that everyone you know posts idiotic, uninteresting pseudo philosophical ramblings, brags about their kids, posts pictures of their food (or even better, recipes to food that everyone knows nobody is going to make), posts religious stuff they know nothing about, posts government things they know nothing about, or posts conspiracy theories because, well, they're idiots.

Then you realize that at some point in your life you were friends with these people and its depressing.  Then you close the facebook window and decide to jerk it to midget porn instead.

Or is that just me?

That's a bingo!

I gotta laugh at all the smart people saying "Well just don't Friend your parents, then!  Duh!"

Well, gee, that's a perfect solution until they stop asking you to accept the Friend request and start telling you to accept the Friend request while standing beside you.

#15 is a spammer on poor grandpa.

Also, don't people create fake accounts for their childish behavior?

/don't they?
//ummmmmmm......walking away quietly
 
2013-09-30 02:56:59 AM  
# 5 comes in a close second to # 16 for me.
 
2013-09-30 02:58:00 AM  
I got on Facebook when my son's band moved to New York City so I could keep track of what they were up to. They would also post links to their latest recordings on their page so I'd get to hear their latest material and some occasional live recordings. My kids, my wife and I all get along great on Facebook and so do my siblings, cousins, cousins' kids, former teachers, a couple of my ex girlfriends. etc.

Of course anyone who does decide to be a dick on my timeline is almost immediately unfriended so I can maintain a happy atmosphere.

Kids don't like Facebook anymore? Hmmmm...

I don't have my dad befriended on Facebook because he doesn't want to have me on his friend list as my female name. =(

My mom doesn't know how to use Facebook, so she's not on it.  Her iPad is about her tech limit right now.  It's actually amazing how much her tech ability has improved in the last 3 years, at age 58 or something like that.

Its pretty easy to set it up so nothing you post can be seen by certain people on your friend list.

When my extended family joined FaceBook, it was like the Beverly Hillbillies had invaded and each was an instinct away from causing complete chaos. The ones that stayed have learned, and the others left. I don't have any really specific memories of what they wrote, but I remember my grandmother writing things to my cousins like, "Have you gotten a job yet?"

When she tried to quit she wrote as her status, "Please remove me from Facebook. Thank you."

I've found older people have a far greater optimism in what they think technology can do for them. Where do they get the idea that Facebook has natural language abilities? This same grandmother complained about Google Maps coming up with bad routes for her. I couldn't believe that someone who grew up during the Great Depression wasn't just absolutely amazed by Google Maps and turn-by-turn GPS.

They aren't hard to believe, parents and facebook are a hell of a combo. But more to the point, these have all been around for a while, so they may have been made up but it wasn't for this article.

/unless they play a very long game...

If I want to say something quick and stupid / profound / cryptic / witty, I tweet it. That's what it's there for.

Best thing, it forces you to be brief and organized.

I have a buddy who is only about 3 years older than me (putting him in his early thirties). He has a master's degree in computer science. He is one of the most technologically inept people I've ever met.

This is why they invented the RESTRICTED group in FB so your shiat stays private and you`re still friends.

Is "I'm not even ON Facebook" the new "I don't even OWN a television"?

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

If you grew up in the great depression, today's technology is "sufficiently advanced"
