Your social media life was going great. You had lots of friends and you were having a great old time: sharing photos, telling tales about personal adventures and even passing along the odd dirty joke. Great fun! And then your mother, father, grandmother or grandfather got a Facebook account and now you’ve practically had to go into hiding. Have they been posting appalling photos of you? Telling stories about how you wet the bed until you were 16? Sharing pics of your kids after you’ve told them not to three times? This is your chance: Tell us what you’d like your much loved old-timer to do or to stop doing to make your life a little easier on social media. We’ll pass it along and who knows? Maybe gram or gramps will get it sorted out and become your bestie again. Send your thoughts to writer Mark LaFlamme at or 689-2876
