Now, there's a Facebook group called \"A group where we all pretend to be boomers,\" and it's exactly like the title says. It's full of posts by young people posting like boomers in an effort to make fun of them, and let me tell you: it's working. It's laugh-out-loud hilarious, and thanks to group member Anna Michelle Hollis, who shared screenshots of a bunch of the group's posts on Twitter, I can share them with you.
I always see people posting, \"I didn't ask for this!\" and \"Why am I seeing this\" and \"Take this off my page!\" and honey, it's hilarious. Older people don't seem to understand that there are algorithms and advertising at work on top of the simple fact that, if you accept someone as a friend or \"like\" their page, you will see their posts. It's impossible to explain it to them.
January 2012When Facebook announced that Timeline, a new way of viewing your personal \"wall,\" was about to be forced upon all users, there was outrage. \"But I don't want things to change!\" we complained. \"Why should my posts be organized clearly and chronologically!\" we raged. Of course, Timeline also made previously-hidden things public and that was a bit of a nuisance, but Facebook gave us seven days to adjust our settings ... but, seriously, who could be bothered to review all their posts Anyway, in the end, like the over-sharing sheep that we are, we gave up complaining about it and now, two years later, no one can even remember what their homepage used to look like, nor what made it \"better\" than Timeline. 153554b96e
