This is pretty amusing, because there are so many kids and parents on Facebook these days, and their interactions then become public! I saw two very funny ones last week between mothers and their kids at college.
FACEBOOK EXCHANGE #1:
College age son posts a photo of himself sitting in the snow in shorts and writes, "What to do with the whole campus to myself" or something similar.
Mom's response: "Okay, so why are you wearing shorts in the snow?"
FACEBOOK EXCHANGE #2:
College age daughter: " (Daughter) feels like death..waiting for cold medicine to work its magic!"
Mom's response: "Go to the doctor."
I can laugh at these things because my own kids are older now, but if they were still in college and I was on Facebook, I would most likely be like these parents! I can get away with an occasional comment or "LIKE" now, but they are 25 and 30 and not so bothered by it.
I've also seen some funny sibling exchanges like this one:
College age boy: "(Curse word) something . . . "
High school sister: "I'm going to tell dad!"
College age boy: "What's he gonna do? I'm here and he's there!"
Facebook is the ultimate reality show. You can peep in hundreds of people's lives including family members. No wonder it's so popular. I heard that Facebook has enough members to be the world's fourth largest country!
