Strange New World

Dear Short Answers:
I don’t use Facebook and I don’t want to start. But it seems that lately, people are making their big life announcements on Facebook instead of telling you in person or sending personal notes. I was the last person to find out that a good friend had a grandchild because she announced it on Facebook. I only found out recently that a friend’s mother had passed away because she announced it on Facebook. Can you tell people that good, old-fashioned communication is still alive and well and not all of us reveal our lives on the Internet — not do we want to communicate with our friends that way.

Dear TC:
We hear you. Maybe others will too.
