A grandmother is Columbus, Ohio has hopefully learned a valuable lesson about humor.

Earlier this month, Jackie Sheaks posted one photo of her baby granddaughter on Facebook with duct tape over her mouth and another photo of the child lying in a roasting pan.

She says she meant the images to be a "joke," but users didn't exactly laugh.

And neither did Child Protective Services or the local sheriff, who dropped by for a visit and questioned Jackie's abilities to supervise a child.

  • Duct-Taped Baby
  • Roasting a Baby?

“We would never harm our children,” Sheaks told a local station after hearing from authorities, adding:

“It’s definitely taught me a lesson: what we think is funny, other people don't... it will never happen again."

Seriously. Just when we thought it couldn't get worse than tying a baby to your wedding gown and dragging it down the aisle.

Moms. We love them, but they don't understand the Google, fail at texting in more ways than we can count and clearly shouldn't be allowed access to the Facebook.

At the very least, their social media behaviors should be closely monitored.

Why? Because as Facebook grows in popularity among Americans young and old, amusing exchanges like these are beyond awkward for their grown kids:

I'm 31 Years Old!

James may be 31, but he'll always be his mom's baby boy. This is a sweet sentiment, but he likely has other words for it after she blasted this photo publicly.

No wonder more and more "kids these days" prefer Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, SnapChat, etc. Facebook is officially your mom's social network hot spot!

Using the service to embarrass family members, intentionally or otherwise, has become as ubiquitous as Facebook itself for users of middle to advanced age.

Whether they're posting baby pics, offering up TMI updates about their own lives or otherwise misusing it, it's basically a ticking time bomb for you nowadays.

We're not sure if it's good or bad, but James is far from alone. Check out 13 more classic cases of parents humiliating kids on Facebook after the jump ...

Flirting has been around for generations, but needless to say, the onslaught of technological devices and applications has taken it to new levels nowadays.

Notice we said levels, not heights. What technology provides in convenience, speed and efficiency, it taketh away in tact, grammar and excitement.

Our lack of inhibitions, shifting expectations and ability to fire off what's on our mind in nanoseconds have transformed flirting dramatically, and forever.

This can be good or bad for the potential relationships in question, but as we've seen time and again, it's hilarious to watch play out via text message.

For better or worse, these 21 people have mastered the art of flirting via text, Facebook, Twitter and other instant communication platforms. And we thank them.

Scroll through the gallery below and bow down to the masters ...

Sometimes, But Not All the Time
I don't always think about you naked, but when I do, it's presuambly a pleasing image.

Is there anything worse in life than wedding planning?

From the flowers to the band to the gold toilets to the guest list, organizing the details of one's big day is nearly enough to prompt one to simply elope.

But one awesomely honest bride-to-be has made her life easier in at least one of these regards, posting a message on Facebook that makes it very clear why you may not be invited to her wedding.

Anyone care to object to these perfectly valid points? If so... sorry. You're probably off the invite list as well.

Bride Explains Wedding Invitations

See, planning for a wedding doesn't need to be such hard work.

Note to Facebook users:

We know it's painful when this social media network goes down and you can't ogle Justin Bieber selfies or tell the world what you had for dinner.

But please do not contact the authorities when such devastation strikes, as it did last Friday, resulting in far too many people* calling L.A. County Sheriff's Department for help with the issue.

(*One person would be classified as "far too many people.")

In response to the influx of 911 calls, Sergeant Burton Brink Tweeted the following two messages:

Police FB Message
Police on FB

We're not sure whether to laugh or cry over the fact that such Tweets had to be sent.

Remember Carleigh O'Connell? The 14-year old who responded to bullying by her classmates by posing for a Facebook photo alongside the insulting piece of graffiti left for her by said classmates?

Now it's time to meet Tanis Jex-Blake - and to be equally inspired.

This mother of five was suntanning at Alberta Beach in Edmonton on Tuesday, wearing a two-piece for the first time since giving birth to her first child in 2001.

While trying to relax, she overheard people referring to her as “nasty” and “disgusting” and then opened her eyes to see two men and one woman pointing at her stretch mark-filled stomach.

  • Mother Stretch Marks
  • Mother of 5

Jex-Blake says she quickly left, broke down in the car ride home, but then decided to stand up for herself on Facebook.

A viral Facebook hoax is saying Miley Cyrus died this weekend. Don't believe any of the hype that Miley Cyrus is dead, though, and don't click on any links.

According to the sham report, the singer passed away at her home due to an overdose, but it’s all a farce. The headline spreading virally reads:

“[SHOCKING] Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home.”

Miley is Money

Shocking as that would be ... Miley hasn't been a country singer in years, if ever.

Oh yeah, and this alleged tragedy did not occur in any way, shape or form.

It's more than just a cruel joke, too, as this particular hoax appears designed to spread bogus surveys that make money for the scammers behind it.

Pretty shameless, but also fairly customary (sadly) in this day and age.

When users click on the post, they’re redirected to a site designed to look like Facebook, which prompts them to share the page before continuing.

There’s no video of Miley Cyrus dead, of course, or story of any sort.

She’s been the subject of similar rumors in the past, as have a host of other celebrities. Check out other stars done in by hoaxes in the past:

Move over Jeremy Meeks, and welcome Chris Kohrs, a new man that’s stealing hearts of women everywhere after becoming an unlikely social media darling.

This time, he's on the right side of the law! Win-win!

Kohrs, a San Francisco police officer, has gone viral on Facebook after a page in his honor, "Hot Cop of the Castro" (a gay enclave in S.F.) went viral.

More than 40,000 “like” the page filled pictures of him helping citizens, kissing babies and/or flaunting his muscles ... and it's easy to see why, right?

Move over Jeremy Meeks, and welcome Chris Kohrs, the Hot Facebook Cop from S.F.

Fans from the City by the Bay and around the world are quick to point out that, unlike Hot Mug Shot Guy Meeks, Officer Kohrs is actually a good guy.

So far, Kohrs has taken well to his quasi-celebrity, though he says he’s surprised by all of it, as he's just a guy doing his job for the city he loves.

“I’m not used to a lot of people coming up to me and taking pictures and things like that. I’m happy to do it,” he told the San Francisco-centric blog SFist.

Amidst the ongoing debate over breastfeeding in public, a new online movement has cropped up that aims to catch Facebook and Instagram in a parental double standard.

The 4th Trimester Bodies Project is a website that strives to depict the real bodies of women who have gone through pregnancy - from stretch marks to scars.

Ashlee Wells Jackson, among others, has been dismayed over these social media networks removing revealing pictures of mothers and their babies ...

... while the sites happily post shots of models in bikinis and lingerie.

Instagram has shut down Jackson's page nine times as a result.

In response, Jackson has created the hashtag #StopCensoringMotherhood and is using it to call out Facebook and Instagram, wondering a simple question:

Why Kylie Jenner and company can pose nearly naked online, yet the following pictures are deemed "inappropriate." We'd love to hear the answer ...
