Since young people are so exposed to facebook perhaps the days of having adults who find it alien territory are numbered themselves if only by age. Kids born today will grow up seeing facebook and twitter from as young as they can remember.
But it doesn't automatically follow that they will grow up to continue using them. Some of the technologies you used in middle school are around today; some have been superseded. Some habits you acquired in middle school remain with you today... and some you outgrew within a few years. There is, ahem, no need to cite specific examples.
