Mom's Perspective on Down Syndrome Will Change How You Feel About the Condition

Appropriate to Post Personal Questions on Facebook Wall?

Sure, Facebook accounts make for an easy way for mom to connect with friends and keep them posted on the major milestones like baby's first steps to the mundane — the number of diapers she's changed. But, should the publishing of personal items be up to her or is it appropriate for inquiring minds to pose questions on her wall — have her postpartum stitches healed or what she really thinks of her nanny? Along those lines, what about putting women on the wall spot by asking if their fertility treatment worked, how much they charge to babysit or when they plan on having children? Is this just part of social networking or is it plain rude?

Akpril, I am TOTALLY with you ... I found out about one 'friend's' pregnancy by her posts about sore boobs, throwing up, missing her period, etc. now every post is about changing poopy diapers.

I have a "friend" who is constantly posting about her childrens' bowel movements, her UTI... Frankly, I don't care how her trip to the OBGYN went and I don't want to hear about it. I wish there was a TMI filter.

You should be able to post ANYTHING you want on your page. However, people should also be able to stop following you w/o your objecting if they are offended by your posts. I don't do facebook because of all of these issues.

prob w/ fb is trying to undo personal info once posted. people can get into personal messages as well. This happened to me- things got unpleasant and taken out of context. Just keep in mind others don't know the ongoing conversations you are having with others- be smart!
