Status Updates Can Be Fun!

Every day, I come across a few hilarious status Facebook updates. Some of them are so funny, that I actually feel stupid laughing all by myself!

Therefore, I invite you to invite you to enjoy our fourth list of the 10 top funniest Facebook status updates.

1. When I broke up with someone the last thing she said to me was, ‘You’ll never find anyone like me again!’ I’m thinking, ‘I should hope not! If I don’t want you, why would I want someone like you?

2. It’s too bad stupidity isn’t painful…

3. They say don’t drink and drive, you might get hurt. For me its don’t drink and walk… I’m bruised!

4. For all those who were at the pub on Monday, please refer to me because I can’t remember anything! Thanks… The bartender

5. I am suffering from technological mood swings!

[HOW TO] Getting the Elderly Up To Speed On The Internet: Facebook And Beyond (part 3)

After my mother and I went over the previous two parts of this series (part one, part two), I left her for a week to try and experiment with what she learned and I was really proud of what she achieved. Never mind that she now checked the pictures of friends of friends of people I never heard of, but she was now curious about who is that girl that is commenting on my brother’s profile, and what are all those weird messages of psychics and farm animals that keep on showing up on her homepage. She also informed of a ‘new’ use that she has found for Facebook for she has ‘discovered’ that by clicking on events on the homepage she will be able to see and plan for everyone’s birthday and she was excited about learning that little tidbit on her own.

While I could have delved deeper into Facebook explaining applications and games, I choose to leave that for a different day and focus on taking her a bit outside of Facebook on this day, focusing our time on two things; Gmail and Skype.

Creating a Contact List Helps

Getting my mother to understand the concept was very simple now that she was familiar with Facebook messages. The only part that she didn’t get was how she was supposed to figure out the address of people that she wanted to get in touch with, and I replied with simply “just ask on Facebook”. With that out of the way, I inputted all the addresses that she will be using into her contacts so that she can access them easily by selecting their name from the “To:” field.

[HOW TO] Getting the Elderly Up To Speed On The Internet: Making Friends (part 2)

In the first part we created a computer enviroment that requires little to no intervention by the user to get them from powering on their laptops to accessing their profile on Facebook. Using this setup my mother had more focus on what she needed to learn and deal with, sometimes we forgot how much a priori is required in order for us to navigate a website such as Facebook. Unless we break down the website into its smaller and simpler elements, the first time computer users will be presented with a very high learning curve and might be inclined to give up in frustration over how much they need to grasp before they are able to do anything with a computer.

Quirky News of the Web — November 2010

Previous quirky news posts: January – February – March – April – May- June – July – August – September – October – November

There are always smaller headlines that tend to go unnoticed. They are the headlines that let us know how individualistic and unique some of the interactions on the web can be, and how much social media is shaping our world in ways that we could not have fathomed 20 years ago.

Therefore, the Quirky News of the Web section will be dedicated to those pieces of news that might go unnoticed but still pack quite the punch.
