Becoming a techie father

My father is not the techie.  He is not into social media and other stuff concerning the social media.  But because of his friends who have accounts on Facebook and active in social, he is eager to know about Facebook. He is a member of a certain group and most of their pictures when they have activities is shared on Facebook.  That is why he wants to buy the android phone and make the account on Facebook.  He wanted me to make him account on Facebook, but I refused because I do not have enough patience teaching.  My father is 70 years old, and teaching him will take time.  Don’t think that I am a bad daughter, just that he is too old for that.

With the help of my niece, his granddaughter, my father has the Facebook account now using her phone.  He has friends already and saw some pictures posted on Facebook.  And last week, my father finally bought an android phone.  I accompany him buying his phone because he wants me to pick a phone for him.  I picked a budget-friendly and user-friendly phone so my father not having a hard time operating it.  So far, he is enjoying his new phone and enjoying the downloaded games.  My father is happy with his new phone.  He bothers me sometimes, but it is fine because he is learning little by little.

Cleaning her Facebook Friends

My niece is new to Facebook world.  Her classmate made her an account because I do not want to make one for her.  She got mad when I told her that she is too young to engage in social media life.  I told her that she has to wait when she turns 18 because this is the age required to make an account on Facebook.  And because her friends are into Facebook, she asked her friend to make her an account.  The niece now has Facebook account.  There is no use of arguing.  I just told her to be careful.  I warned her to be careful in adding friends because there are bad people on Facebook.  And there are rape cases happens because of the people they meet on Facebook (online).

Because I am worried of my niece I keep on checking his activities on social media.  I check her friends and post from time to time to make sure she is okay.  I also checked her friends especially her guy friends to make sure she is safe.  I am surprised because in just two months she has lots of friends compared to me.  I asked her if she knows all the friends she added on her list and she said no.  She has lots of guy friends she added and she did not know most of them.  They do not have mutual friends either.  I want to protect her from those bad people in Facebook (social media) so I told her to clean her Facebook friends.  She has to unfriend those she did not know.  I told her that it is best to stay connected with people she knows and do not just accept friend request from the people she did not know.

Changes my morning routine

My day starts and ends doing household chores, taking care of the kids (nephews and nieces), preparing foods every meal time, watching television after the chores is done and when I still have the time, I try to take some nap to regain the lost energy.  This is my normal day, tiring but fun.  Sometimes I felt really bored doing the same stuffs over again and seeing only the four corners of the house, however, I get used to it since my work is at home.  I used to work before, but end up resigning and please do not ask me why.haha!

But after I became so addict with this social media, my daily routine has change especially my morning.  When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I look for is my tablet and check for what is latest and notifications in my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram account.  I spent more time with these stuffs which is not good but when I started checking, I do not want to stop.  My time is messed up I must say.  And I am blaming myself because I tolerate myself doing it.  I should have my priorities but this social media is a killer, killer of time.LOL  I wish to go back to the time when I am not so active because I want my day to be fruitful.  I should limit myself facing tablet and laptop because there are lots of things to do better than be addicted to these stuffs.  Know our limitations, set goals and be fruitful.

Setting-up Twitter Account for Her

My niece has Facebook account.  She told me that it was her classmate who made an account for her since I refused to make her a Facebook account.  I refused because I do not want her to for she is young.  And her age is not qualified yet.  I told her that she has to wait till she reach the age of 18.  I do not want her to involve in this kind of social media account.  In short, I just want to protect her from those bad stuffs on social media.  But, she has an account now and there is nothing I can do.  I just have to watch her and supervise her.

Right now, she is very active in Facebook.  Chatting to her friends and classmates and updating pictures.  She is enjoying it.  I always reminded her of avoid opening links/video for her own good.  After Facebook, she now wants to have a Twitter account.  OMG!  She is bugging me for days.  So now, I am setting-up Twitter account for her.  She wants to be updated on the latest of her favorite love team ALDUB.  Yes, she is a fan.  A big fan to be exact.  My niece is very much active of these social media thing.  And I cannot stop her.  I guess I just have to double my supervision and being alert for her safety.
