Facebook In Your Teens Vs. Facebook In Your Twenties

Posted on

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.

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.
