Snippet: Life Begins at…Facebook? ☇

Shared on August 14, 2012

Facebook adds a new feature for users’ timelines:

Now, you can choose to add ‘Expecting a Baby’ as a Life Event on timeline.

Oops. For some reason, the fact that Facebook made this a big deal, and that people can’t just post as another news items makes me question if Facebook is encouraging oversharing. When will we have phrases like “took a nap”, “ate too much at a buffet”, or something a little less classy that may lead to the above announcement?

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
