Social media is there for everybody, but that doesn't mean that everybody should use it.

Check out this hilarious list compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. In it you'll find countless examples of older people trying, and failing, to figure out just how this fancy and newfangled social media business works. From dads failing to communicate properly with Siri to grandpas who can't take a joke about their suspiciously fake-looking Metallica tattoos, the people in the list below may have failed at social media, but they definitely won when it came to making us smile.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite, and if you like what you see, click here to see another funny list of older people failing at technology!

We are laughing (and of course we are!), but what if this was an actually important conversation she had to document out for whatever reason there is? Maybe these are the proof to a lawsuit, or just memo for work, or whatever else.

Here's the article: This is Jonah. In some ways, he’s an ordinary kid. He plays with toys. He loves to draw. He’s learning to talk in sentences. But when it comes to age, Jonah is extraordinary. Jonah is 3 years old. What?! You might have heard of a 6-year-old, or maybe even a 5-year-old. But a human being who is just 3? As far as we know, Jonah’s April 10, 2011 birth date makes him the youngest child ever to walk the face of the earth. By a long shot. Jonah is a bona fide biological marvel. Three! It’s an age so low, it’s almost impossible to think about. But if you want to wrap your head around just how young Jonah is, try this: Consider the youngest child you’ve ever met.
