The subreddit r/oldpeoplefacebook is full of hilarious gems submitted by Reddit users who have delightful old people in their Facebook lives. These grandmas and grandpas are doing their best with their new social media technology, but mostly they end up asking Walmart for advice about their grandchildren. From the classic Grandma Grandmaster Flash to Susan and Patricia sharing photo uploading tips, the elderly are having a fabulous time on Facebook, Twitter, and even LinkedIn!

These old people send inappropriate emojis, use the Google Facebook page as a search engine, and accidentally post pictures of hams, that are more accurately described as "pictures of mostly naked men." Oops!

Do you need one more LinkedIn recommendation to snag that dream job? Ask Grandma for one! Then teach her how to properly use the Internet. These old folks are adorable, but at some point, they'll need to get their acts together. The Olive Garden social media time won't always have hours to spend responding to Aunt Teresa's updates about the neighborhood pets that recently died.

Vote up the funniest old people Facebook fails, and enjoy a laugh at Grandma's expense, before she hassles you about your new relationship status.
