Think you are too old for Facebook? Think again

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post titled I now pronounce your Facebook status “Married”. In that blog post, I talked about how engrained Facebook is with the younger generations.

Soon after I wrote that blog post, something amazing happened to me. A client of mine booked a follow-up appointment with me on Facebook.

Big deal, right?

Well, it is a big deal. This particular client is 86 years old. That was not a typo. 86 years old.

Facebook message

And the fantastic part is that he did all of the legwork. He created a Facebook account. He found my profile and added me as a friend. And finally, he sent me a Facebook message asking me if he could set up another appointment with me.

Anyone out there under the age of 86 still think they are too old for Facebook? Think again.
