It started with harmless email check-ins. The initial texting phase was a bit jarring. Then Facebook provided the critical mass: Parents are officially integrated into social media. Everyone experiences the trauma of their parents' social media dalliances differently, and this week, women on Twitter did so hilariously.
Understandably so, Kassia Miller was a little frightened when her mom apparently found the technology in the house: "My mother got into the computer again." Keep computers in high places and tightly locked -- out of the reach of parents.
Leah Josephson confronted the fact that her mom might be a step ahead of her in the social media game when she tweeted: "Clearly I'm not as hip as I thought I was if I get texts from my mom telling me how excited she is that I'm finally on Pinterest..." Texting and Pinterest? Tough break, Leah.

A guy who wears a ring is always a dealbreaker. If it's on his ring finger, he's married. If it's not, he's a guy who wears rings.
