I suppose I really can't see the point of having a "personal page" that's reserved for essentially non-personal communication. Perhaps this is because I don't use Facebook, but I was under the impression that its main function was to keep people up to date on what was going on in your life. Having a serious medical condition is, indeed, something that I would expect people close enough to me to follow my page to be interested in knowing. I assumed it would save me the headache of typing out the same information over and over (or worse, the trauma of saying the same thing over and over on the phone), only to have Cousin Molly come crying to me six months later about how *I* was the bad one for not telling her the news immediately, and how could I have forgotten *her*?
If it's all "I watched Scrubs last night", but "I have a serious problem right now" is forbidden, it sounds like an even more, well, insignificant pastime than I'd supposed.
If "I had a miscarriage" is too personal, would "Great news, I'm pregnant!" also be far too personal to put on Facebook?
