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?

Anyone who has an issue with sharing shouldn’t be on Facebook! I always try to comment on peoples updates and make people feel good. I like to see what family and friends are up to and compliment them, it’s an easy, accessible way to make someones day. People can go on and on about who and what they hate but it’s rude to post an “I love you”???

Each and every occasion I notice a really very good post I do a few things: 1.Discuss it with all the (blank) colleagues it in all of the favorite social sharing web-sites.(blank).Make sure to return to the website where I read the post. After reading this post I am seriously concidering doing all 3! ))))

Merely learned your web web page via google and i look at this can be a shame that you might be not ranked upper due to the fact that that is a great post. To change this i decided to stay away from wasting your web web site to my Rss reader and I’ll try to point out you in 1 of my posts given that you actually deserv additional readers when publishing content content of this high quality.

I completely agree with the fact that they are jealous. I would love for my husband to post on my wall his thoughts and feelings. What else is face book for, venting and attacking people, who 90% of the time aren’t on face book themselves or even friends with them. Just because you’re friends husbands have to big of on ego and a small..**** who cares what they think!!!!

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are currently using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
