How do you all feel about posting personal/private issues on social media like Facebook? I know I have and will post plenty of very personal things on here. Blogs are a bit different. I don’t share this on facebook, because that would be too much personal exposure there. There are also things I just keep to myself and don’t put anywhere on the internet.
I don’t know if its just the people I know on FB, but it seems like more and more are putting up anything and everything. Appropriate or not.
Verbal diarrhea, I call it.
Yeah, you have the right to post whatever the heck you want. I get that. But where is the line? What if you are hurting someone? What if you are spreading lies? What if you post petty rants that hurt others just to get likes and supportive comments? How does that solve your issues? To me, it just makes you come off as classless, rude, bitter, and sometimes just a little bat-shit crazy.
I know the simple solution is to just delete them on FB. I’ve done that to several people.
Its just so unclear where the line is these days, where cowards can hide behind the facelessness and anonymity of the internet and say whatever they want. I do believe it is a wonderful gift to be able to give people a platform to talk and get their ideas across to others all over the world (via blogs, twitter, fb, etc.). When will we learn to use this power for the good?
