Lorna Thomas, a resident of Somerset, England, wanted to check Facebook when she realised her son was logged in. Unable to log out of his account, the woman posted a message for her son asking him how she could log on to the website.
"Hello Daniel. This is your mother. How do I get back on to my own Facebook page?" she texted her son, Dan Thomas. However, what she had actually done was to post the message on the 'Avon and Somerset Constabulary' Facebook page.

Meanwhile, the adorable post has collected almost 3,000 reactions and over 275 shares. Several people love the exchange.
