Savvy grandmas explain the rules for social media

By Maura Judkis

When designer Chacho Puebla was a little boy, his grandmothers would lecture him to be careful with his money, to not get involved with a certain type of girl, to get a haircut. But when the current generation becomes grandparents, it’s likely that their advice to the younger generations will take a different tone.

“Grandmother Tips” is a series of photos that Puebla created for the next generation of super-savvy grandmas. They offer tips on everything from World of Warcraft to purchasing apps. “When you´re younger you think you´ll never fall into that same kind of discourse, until you find yourself talking about stupid (cliché) stuff with your kid,” writes Puebla, who got his great-aunt to pose for the photos. “Here are some tips my grandmother should have given me.”

Check out some of Puebla’s advice below. What online advice will you give your kids, or grandkids, someday?
