First off: before we get to laughing at grandmas and grandpas stumbling over a concept that didn't exist for the majority of their lives, let's take a second to ask ourselves: who are we to judge? Not being able to figure out Facebook -- a site that's been repeatedly criticized for lack of transparency and usability-- is not such a shocking ordeal. I'm impressed they even feel obligated to adapt to the deeply arbitrary norms and rules of social media. Don't listen to us, we're idiots! Go ahead, mistake the status bar for a search engine. Be baffled that you're talking to... a brand. Do misunderstand that while you can drag images into your post, you can't do that with PDFs. It's all good.
