My 60ish year-old aunt is on Facebook and she’s great at it3
A week ago my aunt joined Facebook. First, she started ‘liking’ everything I posted -and I post a lot, I’m a Facebook addict. Then she started posting things herself: youtube videos, texts, newspaper articles, pictures… all sorts of things! I am frankly absolutely amazed at how fast she picked it up. And I just love to read and listen everything she posts there. This shows that you can be a grand-mother and still open to new technologies. Clearly my aunt has an amazingly fast ability to understand how social media work… not that I ever doubted she had it in her!
My aunt lives far away from where I live so we do not talk as much as I would like to. But now, thanks to Facebook and my aunt’s openness to trying new things, I get messages from her everyday. This truly warms my heart. As my other beloved aunt -her sister- likes to say: what matters is not physical youth but being young in your mindset.
Love you, auntie O. and anti E. 🙂

According to the video on Social Media Revolution which you posted on FB, women between 55 and 65 are the fastest growing numbers of new members! So “tantine” is bang on… (and me too! 😉
the best way to connect with people who are dear and are far away from us is through social media. Great post
