Who isn’t addicted to social networking? I can’t wait to see what’s next…

Facebook Etiquette

If you’re like me and fortunate enough to have a mother who is a senior citizen and also a Facebook addict, you can hopefully relate to these moments: Mom makes a post on my wall describing her planned activities for the day.
