The 'Too Much Information (TMI)' Update

"Bob Levin is still gassed from his long-delayed sigmoidoscopy."
"Joe Kass can't stop picking his nose."
"Jodi Portia is having the heaviest period ever!"

Who needs juicy third-person gossip when Facebookers seem more than willing to reveal intimate details of their own private lives to a horrified yet fascinated public? Nothing is off limits when it comes to the 'Too Much Information (TMI)' update. From behind the veil of Facebook faux-anonymity, people will talk openly about their sex lives, body issues, bad habits, secret thoughts, perverted minds, and weird quirks.

Sure, a TMI update might make your readers cringe, but there's something liberating about exposing your inner demons to a generally supportive community of online friends. And who knows -- maybe someone will comment in agreement, making you feel less alone.
