Oops. I had some prewritten posts up my sleeve to help me with the post-every-day thing, but those only help if you actually schedule them to post. So, yeah, I missed posting on the 10th. WEGO says we get two "Get out of post" days in the month... looks like I just used one of mine!
Yesterday's WEGO Health prompt: Should people post about their (or loved ones) health on Facebook? Why/why not?
Ugh. Sticky question. First of all, you have to know that my Facebook account is not linked with my blogs, it's not linked with Twitter-- it's just for people I actually know, or at least used to know, in real life. There are very few exceptions to that rule on my friends list- two are boyfriends of my friends, one is a friend of a friend and has a child just dx with Type I Diabetes, and one is a professional contact. That's pretty much it, though... everyone else I really know.
Back to the question: I think generalities are fine when it's just everyday stuff. "Rosie had a great check-up today". Or, "Stupid diabetes... Rosie's been high all day!"... a post to be seen by friends only. The end.
I have seen people go too far, IMHO. One friend was posting very intimate details of her friend's sick family member. I felt uncomfortable reading those when they'd pop up in my feed... I didn't know the sick person, and I'm not sure how they would feel about their personal life being discussed by strangers on Facebook.
I'm posting daily in November in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month and the WEGO Health's National Health Blog Post Month. #NHBPM
