Social media through Grandpa's eyes

Social media through Grandpa's eyes

I am lucky enough to work from home, and today when I went upstairs, to check in on my dad, and see if he needed anything, he asked me if I can show him how to go back to what just flashed across the bottom of the T.V. (rewind our DVR)

"Sure dad, no problem" I said as he handed me the remote.  "It's probably a weather warning"

"No" he said.  "Ellen is giving her audience a chance to win a trip to Australia and we are supposed to pay attention and watch for clues.

This is what he saw...

"Do any of those things mean anything to you?" he said with excitement when I paused the T.V.

I challenge you to explain all four pictures and what they mean better than this.

Facebook - a social media website, you know that place on your kindle, where I show you pictures of Tina and the kids

Twitter - a place where people can say whatever they want, but it can't be longer than one sentence

You Tube - a place to watch videos people make

Instagram - a place to share all your pictures for people to see

I don't think my dad will be asking me any questions in the near future.  I also shutter to think about what kind of questions I will ask my kids.

Good luck to all of us!
