This was great.
First thought was that this guy must have felt so isolated. Facebook would be about the last place I would choose to make such a revelation....He's certainly got gut's, but I can't help feeling that he may well regret using FB as his medium for telling his friends..?
I don't know, I came out on FB to my friends and had nothing but good responses.
The people who are insecure about their own sexuality are the one who will have a problem. Remember that..
I guess having though about it it sort of makes sense...I don't use FB much any more, but I did tell the friends I'd lost touch with about the death of my wife there. Perhaps it's easier in a way to tell everybody at once rather than having the same conversation over and over.
Haha, I hate when some of my friends geekify any Facebook post I make. Don't get me wrong, I love talking geek, but it drains me when I can't get away from it.
Oh, cool post on coming out too.
I think the replies were much more interesting than the status lol
I personally don't see the need to post a status about it. If people asked me about my orientation, i'd tell them. but I don't really think it's a big deal to post a status about it especially if people want to prove their point that homosexuality is ok or not
I don't go around posting status' saying "oh im straight" or whatever. Shouldn't be a big deal
I'm not on FB. It's evil and potential employers go look people up on it.
First rule of having a Facebook account - maximum privacy so people who aren't your friend can't even search for you.
Unless you're a stripper, in which case having a public account would only improve your chances of being hired.
I'm afraid I'm old enough to be somewhat disturbed by this. I'm sure it's because I pre-date the "computer generation".
But the loss of personal contact when imparting important and personal information seems a loss, to me.
While i understand posters above who are comfortable communicating such personal events and information on the web, and I am in no way criticizing them, I feel a kind of sadness at the dilution of actual personal contact with friends to talk about important events in their lives.
For me, there are times when putting pen to paper is necessary - email just is too impersonal.
Again, this is not criticism, just the musings of an old guy catching up with a new world, with some nostalgia for the old.
I had one a while back, but deleted it because of privacy issues. Facebook will absolutely screw you one way or another.
Personally, I'd be more worried about Google.
Except they were forced to allow you to opt-out of tracking, which I hope everyone does.
I smelled a rat emanating from Facebook from Day 1, and never bit the hook.
I don't think some people read through the comments
It must have been a relief for the guy to have his friends react that way, kudos all around
Wait, are you saying people comment without reading? Shocking.
I have an account but it is not my name. Not even close.
So you're going by something like 'sad983' ?
More like Sad371..........
