Even if your grandmother isn't on Twitter -- or hasn't even heard of it -- you know that she'd have some wisdom to provide in the ways of social media.
That's the premise behind Chacho Puebla's Grandmother Tips, a collection of photographs with straight-shooting advice like "Don't think you are a photographer just because you use Instagram." Featuring his great-aunt in photographs shot by his sister, the Madrid-based creative director pulls together old-school settings alongside buzzwords and winks to the age of 2.0.
The recently released Volume 2 kicks off with such gems as the timely, "Kiddo, never buy the first Apple product -- wait till they fix the bugs in the next model." So while this advice might actually be coming from Puebla's vast experience in the world of social media, does it seem to ring more true when it seems to be from the mouth of Granny coupled with pretty typography? There's no question it does -- but you know you'll be hitting "like" on your own post in just a few minutes anyway.
