Being Too Personal on Facebook

October 19, 1997 - First Kiss

August 12, 2014 - He walks out with no warning, no desire to work on things, no feeling that he has to act like a grown man or wanting to stay a part of Mine, Coda or Beau's life in any way - and I quote "This is me leaving you"
August 28, 2014 - He delivers divorce papers

The post above in my opinion is just too personal for Facebook.  The women who wrote it is a librarian whom I met a few years ago at a professional meeting.  I made friends with her on Facebook shortly after that and haven't been in contact with her since then.  She is sharing something very personal with people she really does not know.  This is certainly a traumatic experience for her.

I wish her all the best and hope that in the long run her personal situation works out for the best.  The point of this post is too advise people not to be too personal on Facebook.
