Facebook Misuse – Ryan’s a Hippo

Hippotag

It’s always entertaining to watch your parents attempts to embrace technology.

There’s a Zoo in the UP that my mom frequents and likes to tell us about. So it wasn’t unusual to see a photo of a hippo posted on my brother’s wall the other day. What was unusual was that my mom tagged that hippo as Ryan Scheuerman. When I talked to her later I asked, “Why’d you tag Ryan as a hippo?” She replied, “Isn’t that how you tell someone you want them to look at a picture?” I then explained to her, “no, tagging means that person is in the picture – you just told everyone your son is a hippo.”
