I hope I am as up to date when I am in my 80's.
Actually, I've been (along with some of her friends) encouraging my mother in law to get on Facebook for a while. To me it is easier than email and it has wonderful photo sharing tools. She had a lot of misgivings, although she is very social. I couldn't blame her for some of her misgivings, especially about online safety.
But today, a niece from way out of town visited and - voila-she was on. She joined about 4 hours ago and already has 9 friends. I hope this niece set her up for maximum privacy settings.
It was a pleasant surprise when I came home tonight and found the friend request.
Way to go.
So far the friends are all younger relatives, ranging from their 60's to their 20's. I hope she can make contact with "true" friends. Wouldn't it be something?
Now (hee hee) if I can interest her in FarmVille.....
