Why I really can't get on with Facebook #79

Facebook mixes up the public and the private in a way that I just can't really get on with.

Latest example, do I really want to know that my niece's boyfriend has just shaved off all his pubic hair?


I don't even need to think about the answer to that question. I don't. And no, I don't want to know why either. Definitely TMI. I'm sure that when we meet at my Dad's 90th birthday party in a few months time, the idea that his girlfriend's grey-haired auntie knows such intimate things about him might cause him a little embarrassment. Or do young people not worry about such things these days?
