Facebook In Your Teens Vs. Facebook In Your Twenties

Out with the bumper stickers, in with the unfriending.

1. In your teens: Comment on your best friend’s sepia-colored profile picture.

In your twenties: Rarely comment on profile pictures because you don’t want to seem overly excited about something so trivial.

2. Teen: “Like” or comment on most of the statuses that flood your newsfeed.

Twentysomething: Scroll through statuses because you don’t have energy to read three paragraph rants.

3. Teen: Write on someone’s wall to see how they’re doing.

Twentysomething: Inbox someone a message and avoid PDA on the timeline.

4. Teen: Send your friend a bumper sticker that totally describes your relationship.

Twentysomething: Send your friend a GIF that totally describes your relationship.

5. Teen: Upload an album from your BFF’s surprise party with a digital camera.

6. Teen: Put a Dave Matthews Band lyric in your bio section for some flavor.

Twentysomething: Try to prove to the masses you’re sophisticated by just leaving your birthday and alma mater in your bio section.

But still hum those DMB lyrics.

7. Teen: Friend request everyone you meet, even if it was for 10 seconds during lunch in the cafeteria.

Twentysomething: Wait to friend request someone because they know you searched them and then stalked your life and GAH.

8. Teen: Wish all of your friends a Happy Birthday with a Graffiti drawing.

Twentysomething: Check your friendship and see if that person wished you a Happy Birthday last year. If not, ignore.

9. Teen: Everyone can scroll through your tagged pictures from birthday parties and homecoming events.

Twentysomething: Make your tagged pictures private. You don’t want your Facebook friends to see your drunken fail from last Saturday night.

10. Teen: Record a silly video on Photobooth and share it on your friend’s wall.

12. Teen: Make a corny status to fit the classic “is” complex.

Twentysomething: Shamelessly share a Spotify playlist of your favorite music.

14. Teen: Always be available on Chat to talk with anyone about homework, hookups, and TV shows.

Twentysomething: Stay offline on Chat so you won’t be bothered when Facebook stalking.

15. Teen: When it’s your best friend’s birthday, you write an all-caps message on their wall with an endless amount of exclamation points.
