    Facebook’s growth is mainly because of its integration of games and groups of friends.  And I think, we should not stop our children in using this, all  we have to do is guide and limit them in using this.

  2. I recently discovered my mum was on Facebook. Really surprised me because I’m in late forties and she’s nearly eighty!

    There’s no way we’re going to friend each other. Considering our ages, that would be just too weird!

      I can understand Matt, but you must give a try by adding your mum. You might get this weird feeling which everyone gets but it all depends on whether you want your mum to be socially connected with you or not.

      Happy Facebooking :-D
