23 Reasons Old People Are Better At Facebook Than You’ll Ever Be

Aside from the negligent percent of users who actually use Facebook to “stay in touch,” almost everyone is on social media because it’s one giant ego stroke.

Not old people, though! They don’t need their egos (or anything else) stroked because they are the most direct and brazen folks on Facebook. Utterly unashamed and outspoken, they don’t really GAF who they upset. In fact, they probably didn’t even realize they did something off-putting in the first place.
