Do people overshare on social networks?

    Do people overshare on social networks?

    Meaning - sharing pictures without thinking, writing too many personal things, adding people you have no idea who they are but since they asked for your friendship it's polite to add them and so on?

    Generally speaking, I abhor generalities. In every activity in which "people" are involved, some percentage of those participating are certainly going to overdo it.

      Well said. I agree with Jim. And sad to say the percentage related to over-sharing in social networking sites is very high.

      That's true, Jim. Generalities are, well, "too general", for lack of better term - yet so many people keep on posting every single thing about themselves and then complain about lack of privacy...

    I don't think there is anything wrong with talking about your personal life on social media. I don't see the point in connecting with people you don't know though.

      I think it depends on level of details you share and also your privacy settings. It sometimes truly makes me wonder why people feel the need to post pictures like "me being drunk under the table" or leading status wars with their partners...

      It is silly. But I think they're just lonely.

    Some people do.  If you're updating your status more than twice a day, every day, you're probably over-sharing - And clogging up your friends news feed a bit tongue

      Heh, very true - I think that time to time everyone feels the need to update a lot, but doing it all the time definitely is going to make people annoyed big_smile
