The only "parent" figure is my mother, DH's folks are passed and my father only gets pictures via email that I send him cuz he doesnt show them off anyway so I wont send him any via mail and he doesnt visit.

Needless to say...mom has a cell phone but doesnt know how to text, can read one but not reply. Doesnt take photos really with it.
Doesnt have Facebook nor anything more than an email account that she rarely looks at LOL.
She doesnt snap pics with a camera although I do believe she has one. She knows my sisters and I snap pics and share so just waits for them. LOL

No Twitter or anything along those lines nor a Kindle or anything similar.

Do your parents and inlaws:
Take pictures with a camera? my mom tries to all the time...the camera never seems to work, and my dad takes it and it always works haha. My MIL never does. My FIL's gf takes lots with her cell.
Have a cell phone? FIL's gf and both my parents do
Take pix w/ a cell? see above
Text? same 3 as above...my mom is terrible though....its a guess as to what she's trying to say sometimes because of typos!
Have a Kindle or similar? none of them
On Facebook? My mom, FIL's gf and MIL are all on there...MIL drives me nuts and I need to limit what she can do more than I already have...its bordering indecent
Twitter? none, but I don't either!
Have a computer w/ internet? They all do
Email? both my parents, FIL's gf, and MIL all do

Good questions, its interesting to see the differences between them and me!

Take pictures with a camera? Yes, both

Have a cell phone? Yes, both - though the in laws just upgraded to smart phones a couple of years ago

Take pix w/ a cell? Yes! Finally! ha ha

Text? Yes, the in laws more recently than my parents, as they didn't have texting enabled on their flip phones previously lol

Have a Kindle or similar? My Dad has an ipad, just bought last year, my Mom does not - she is adamant about preferring her regular books. My FIL has a nook, MIL isn't as technologically advanced!

On Facebook? Unfortunately, yes they ALL are! My Dad just joined earlier this year and the ILs share a facebook page.

Twitter? Nope, none of them

Have a computer w/ internet? Yes, all of them. I think my MIL recently got a laptop (they have a family desktop). Both of my parents have their own laptops and my Dad got a Mac last year!

Email? Yes!

Do your parents and inlaws:

Take pictures with a camera? My il's and my dad/stepmom do. My mom/stepdad have taken to using their Blackberry Playbooks to take pictures on.

Have a cell phone? All of them. They're all basic phones (although my mom does have a Blackberry in addition to her normal phone, but she uses it for work mostly).

Take pix w/ a cell? I think they all know how, but they don't usually.

Text? My mom and my stepmom are probably the most familiar with it. My dad and stepdad have gotten a lot better. My il's don't text.

Have a Kindle or similar? Like I mentioned, my mom and stepdad have Blackberry Playbooks. I don't think they read on them though. Everyone else seems to prefer their real, paper books to ibooks too (I can't say I blame them ).

On Facebook? They're all on Facebook. My il's share one account. They went from almost never using it to being pretty handy with it!

Twitter? None of them, which is fine by me because even dh and I don't use Twitter.

Have a computer w/ internet? All of them.

Email? All of them.
