List Rules Vote up the funniest fails from old people trying to use Facebook.

Facebook was founded all the way back in 2004, and these days, its user demographics encompass nearly every age group – including the more senior members of society. While they may be full of wisdom and life experience, some of them haven't quite managed to apply their knowledge to social media, leading to some hilarious Facebook fails from old people.

If you want to see posts from old Facebook users who really missed the mark, the /r/oldpeoplefacebook subreddit has you covered. The best candid screenshots posted there feature older people struggling to post job openings, write on the right person's timeline, post appropriate GIF comments, understand memes, or update their statuses in a way that makes any kind of sense.

Here are some of the funniest mishaps from old people trying to use Facebook. Just remember, you're laughing with them.
