Oversharing on Facebook
Mon, 11-25-2013 - 9:24am

The ugly truth: everyone overshares on Facebook. But, in the world of T.M.I., moms just might take the cake. Instances of mom-overshares on Facebook are rampant, not only within our personal Facebook newsfeeds but also referenced all over the web on sites like babble.com, today.com/moms, stfuparentsblog.com, imom.com, nickmom.com, huffingtonpost.com and more. Listen, we're all for baby news and sweet/funny updates about the kids, but it's the OVERsharing that sometimes makes us squirm. Here are a few things you should rethink how you share, from one mom to another...


What overshares on Facebook really bother you?  Anything specific come to mind?

The best thing about facebook? The "hide feed" option. I have several friends whose feed is hidden. If I miss them, I go read their page. If I don't miss them, I don't.

There are some people that go overboard in the sharing department, Lol, One friend posts everything from her debt woes to troubles with her ex and her children, That kind of stuff I find more annoying than the fluff posts and photo shares.
