Detailing the often hilarious trials and tribulations of parents online, the 'Parental Discretion Advised' infograph spells out stats about what Mom and Dad are doing on Facebook.

Chock full of staggering statistics and funny anecdotes, the chart marks the increasing presence of an older demographic on social media sites. Many parents, the graph explains, are concerned with their child's safety online, which serves as a motivator for being on Facebook themselves. Others, however, admit to being just plain curious. The infographic also details the dreaded 'limited profile' that parents see when viewing their child's page. Though often the target of Facebook jokes, 63% of moms and dads on the graph described themselves as "very proficient" online.

Funny and promising to some older demographics, this infograph details the unlikeliest Facebook users and is sure to give both parents and children a comprehensive snapshot of their place on the web.
