The Delete Option
Sapphyre’s mom was grousing about her daughters desire to move from Norfolk on Facebook. She was using language i knew she would later think was excessive. I played the voice of moderation (which for those who know me is whimsical theater).
I said that while it was clear that the mom loved living in Norfolk, Sapphyre knew it was time to move on. And that her departure did not mean it was a poor choice for the mother. Bettina jumped on my comment as reason to delete her original post.
Along with defriending people, until we ditch Facebook, i want to advocate a culture in which we readily delete threads which we feel in anyway uncomfortable or unhappy about.
[Turns out Bettina is not Sapphyre’s mom, just a friend playing that role]
