Okay, so here's something I've been wondering. Sometimes I post something and get several responses, and respond to them, and a particular friend responds back, and then I say something, and she says something, and it continues with just the two of us talking (sometimes with the conversation meandering a bit from the original post). This has also happened with somebody else's status, where several of us respond, she says something, I respond, and pretty soon it's just the two of us talking.
Especially since other people have "liked" or responded to the original post, some of them may be getting notifications for our continued conversation, plus the conversation ends up being very public. It's never a private conversation that it's a problem to have publicly.
My question is, is this rude? Does this drive other people crazy? I know they can turn off notifications for a thread, but is that annoying to have to do?
At what point should the conversation be moved to PM? As soon as two people have gone back and forth a couple of times and it's clear nobody else is still in the conversation?
I guess my main concern is that one particular friend that I seem to end up doing this with the most often is somebody who never seems to talk on PM/answer PMs, and she's an old friend that I've drifted apart from a bit and enjoy the contact that we maintain on FB. If it weren't for that, I'd just decide, hey, I should just switch to PM as soon as it happens.
