Filling in the Generation Gap - My Daughter (who is addicted to Facebook and can't imagine life without it) and my Dad (who is addicted to the internet and can't imagine why anyone would want to use Facebook)
In a wired world the generation gap seems to disappear or does it? The whole idea of Facebook has been challenged with a new blog called RinkleBOOK. What a spunky play on words. Geared towards the 55 plus crowd who really don't feel they have all that much to contribute to the younger Facebook, RinkleBOOK is a fun, comforting place to visit daily to find content that's a little more their speed and mindset.
I'm not knocking this demographic. My goodness, it's right around the corner for many boomers, myself included. I just think this is so sweet and ingenious. Their current post is about lazyness and we all know older people think the younger generation can be quite lazy at times. I find this blog quite comical. I get a real sense that the blogger will be poking fun at their collective state of mind. RinkleBOOK just started, but I think we should let all of our loyal parent readers know it's there waiting for them! Perhaps they will get great pleasure from over-the-hill topics and humor rather than beautiful bedrooms and fashion fixes.
