Facebook: How Much Wall Love Is Too Much?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Guest blogger Liz Fenton: A miracle happened the other day. My Facebook-challenged husband actually wrote on my wall. I was impressed. Because last time I checked, he didn't even know how to find my wall, let alone write sweet nothings on there.

I'm not going to lie: I liked it. Just the fact that he took the time to actually log out of to stop by and tell me that he loved me made me feel ... special. And after being married for ten years, that's saying A LOT!

But along with my post-Facebook-wall glow came some shit-talking from friends who felt like that kind of public display of affection was just too much; that my husband and I were the virtual version of the people you yell, "Get a room!" to. And while I was surprised they felt this way, I had to admit that overly affectionate Facebookers bugged me, too, sometimes.

Which begs the question: How much Facebook love is too much? I'll admit I've often been guilty of popping by a friend's page and letting her know I miss her or that I can't wait for our next GNO. And if you put up hot new profile picture, I'm probably going to swing by and tell you how much I like it. I just don't see the harm in letting other people know you're thinking about them. I think that as long as you're not having a virtual makeout session, there's nothing wrong with spreading the love.

But I want to know what YOU think, momlogic moms. How much Facebook love is too much?

I think your friends are jealous.

I think they are jealous too! They can delete you from your friends if they don’t like it. To bad…and oh well!

My hubby has yet to post an I love you or something like that on my wall but he will “like” pictures that I post or certain comments : ) Your friends are jealous!

Assuming you are talking about agape versus eros love I say there can never be too much agape! But I do confess that some ‘eros love’ posts would be better sent privately.

I agree with Anonymous, I think your friends are jealous. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with your husband posting his love for you. Your friends should find the thoughtfulness in this and be happy for you, not jealous.

Definitely think your friends are JEALOUS! It would be one thing if he constantly left sappy comments on you wall all the time! I know how you feel, my hubby never leaves me comments on FB and we’ve been married 7 years. So it’s a good feeling when they leave that one little comment to tell you they love you….so I say, bask in the glory!! :)

Your friends are definitely jealous! If it was several times a day, every day, I’d be like “Geez enough is enough”, but one little post? C’mon! I hope this doesn’t scare your husband from posting on your wall in the future!

The ones I do have issues with are the ones who are constantly, CONSTANTLY, posting about how perfect their life, hubby or kids are, and how happy they are. Again, c’mon! No one’s life is that perfect. Who are they trying to convince? They’re like the women that bathe in perfume. What are they hiding? Sure, I’m happy, but I have my sad moments too, and I know my life/hubby/kids aren’t perfect.

Plus I’d be afraid of jinxing my happiness if I were to post butterflies and cupcakes all the time lol.

Yeah, JEALOUS! It was only once. And they decided to loose their minds over it. It has to be jealousy. I have a couple or two on my FB and they send sweet nothings to each other that are visible. And I think its sweet. With the divorce rate and the breakdown of the family unit we need a little love spread, whether in person or virtual.

Sweet Love is always great!! It would only get to be too much if drifted towards the bedroom scene and that should always remain private. When people have to make that public there is definitely something missing privately. LOL

Simply discovered your web page through google and I consider this can be a disgrace that you are not ranked upper due to the fact that that is a fantastic post. To switch this I determined to avoid wasting your web site to my RSS reader and I will try to point out you in one of my posts since you actually deserv extra readers when publishing content material of this quality.
