This is a place to share funny, weird, and entertaining posts from people still trying to figure out how social media "works". It doesn't have to be old people or Facebook necessarily. It's just that old people are usually the worst offenders!
Useful tool for screenshots:
Rule 1: Respect the privacy of the people featured here. Never link directly to Facebook. Post a screenshot instead. Be sure to block out the following personal information on every post:
(a) Profile Pictures
(b) Last names
(c) Cities/Towns and other specific location info
(d) Identifying features in photos posted to personal pages (Photos posted on public pages are okay.)
Posts containing personal information will be removed. Repeated or severe violations may be grounds for a ban.
Rule 2: Be respectful; this means no personal attacks. Personal attacks will result in a warning, which will then result in a ban.
Rule 3: Comments attempting to point out that the post is fake or linking to /r/thathappened will be removed. This is a place to share funny social media posts, even if it does seem fake just try to see the humor in it. At the same time, please try to avoid posting things that are obviously fake. Feel free to put them in /r/oldpeoplecirclejerk.
Rule 4: Submissions must show that the subject doesn't fully understand proper use of social media. While this is broadly defined, it does not include posts that are strictly religious, political, or bigoted. Posts that do not meet this criteria will be removed. Subreddits linked below may be a more appropriate place for such content.
Mods have the right to act on a case by case basis. If you have an issue or question, feel free to send us a message.
