These Are The Facebook Habits Of Latino Families That We All Know To Be True

Modern Family/ABC/Giphy

Way back when, Facebook was only for college students. Now, everyone under the sun can add you as a friend and that usually means your mami, papi, primas, tias, tíos, vecinos, padrinos are going to be all up in your friend requests. But there is something special about family members on Facebook that is endearing yet sometimes annoying. Here are the things almost all Latinos on Facebook know to be true about their family.

One thing Latinos know to be true about their Facebook presence is that they are always on top of it.

This is a real problem.

They love Facebook so much, they even baptized it with a new name.

Also commonly known as ‘el face.’

They go through some extreme social media crossovers.

There’s nowhere to hide.

They love to watch videos of nothing in particular and demand that you look at it.

Yes, mami, it’s a funny video of a dog dancing merengue and I saw it already.

If they have something to say, they’ll make sure everyone knows.

They’re just using this as another thing to threaten you with!

…even when some topics should be private.

Ayyy.

No English? No problem. They are more than happy to translate your latest updates to let all the non-English speaking family know what you’re up to.

“Aqui, mijita hablando con las primas en la sala.”

If you’re their child/cousin/nephew, etc., they will claim you.

They have to make sure everyone knows who they are.

But one thing is certain: they have very good manners and thank people for liking their posts.

There is something very endearing about this.

And they love a good #TBT.

They basically created the hashtag.

They unknowingly embarrass you with ill-timed comments like this just to say hello.

If they only knew.

To them, there is no boundary on where and when they give you saludos…

Any post is literally fair game.

…And those messages will often be very long, but sweet.

It’s hard to be mad at this, though.

But honestly, nothing will boost your confidence more than your family on Facebook.

And they somehow always get you 935874 more likes on a photo when they like it.

So, if you add your family on el Face, get ready for entertainment, shoutouts, and lots of saludos.

After The Problem He Ran Into With His Son’s Baptism, This Latino Dad Decided To Create His Own Charro Apparel Store

With a love for authentic Mexican apparel, but limited access to it because he doesn’t live in Mexico, entrepreneur Francisco Galvez decided to take matters into his own hands by opening his own charro clothing store.

Founded by Francisco Galvez in January 2015, Charro Azteca is stealing the hearts of many Latinos for its beautiful and authentic charro apparel.


So. ADORABLE!! ?

When his son was born in December 2014, Galvez knew that other families would also love and appreciate an authentic Mexican clothing line. So he went for it.


“My dream had always been to dress my son in a White Charrito traje for his baptism. Now the question was where to get this suit? Even if you do [have access to these retailers], you still have to visit 3-4 locations because of limited quantities and the possibility of them not having your size. I had a problem and figured other people were going through the same thing, so I wanted to fix that.”

A few weeks after launching his business he received a transaction from Alaska of all places that helped Galvez realize what he was doing had a purpose.


“Our people have migrated to every corner of the U.S., sometimes to places you would’ve never thought of and they don’t have access to products like the ones I sell. I feel obligated to provide authentic Mexican products no matter where they live in the U.S. It was an Alaska transaction that I received in the first weeks of business that cemented everything I was doing had a purpose.”

People from all over the U.S. and of all ages are ordering baptism, wedding and even prom outfits from Charro Azteca.


#PromGoals

It’s been a few years since Galvez founded Charro Azteca “and the support has been overwhelming,” Galvez noted on Instagram and he couldn’t be happier.


With every delivery made, Galvez told mitú, “The ultimate purpose of Charro Azteca is to deliver the Mexican culture to every door step in the country. We want to become the Amazon of all authentic, Mexican culture products. Our tagline is ‘It’s in our blood’ or ‘Lo tenemos en la sangre.'”
