Here’s a great social media trend: Grandmas on Facebook are accidentally tagging themselves as Grandmaster Flash. Apparently, nana didn’t get the message.

To be fair, it’s easy to tag the wrong name in a post, thanks to Facebook’s auto-tagging feature. You’ve done it before, but the difference is you almost definitely correct your post. A lot of grandmas apparently are not so quick to fix the mistake, if at all. Look:
