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.

Nothing funny about this one. This daughter obviously needs to be re-educated. The fact that she has wrong stuff like this in her home is just plain creepy. A sex life should be normal! This is not normal!!!
