Surely the whole point about being young is you do things the adults just don’t get? You talk in ways adults don’t understand. You listen to music they dislike. And you do things on the internet they just can’t keep up with. I thought that was the whole point?
So I’m slightly baffled by Georgia Southern University which is – wait for it – running a class in:
Huh? I thought all these little Gen X-ers, Millenium Kids and Net Natives where BORN knowing how to use Facebook and Beebo and Twitter and all the rest of it. I thought that Facebook stopped being cool when the wrinklies in print and broadcast media got there. And here is proof positive if ever it was needed: it can’t be cool, it’s taught in school.
Still, it will at least be a class they attend, I guess.
Which may be why Georgia Southern are running it, of course.
