If someone posts on social media and then a friend mentions it to you, is that gossip?

There is a lot of what is posted on social media that we wish was shared more than it is. If I announce a new project on my LinkedIn page, for example, I’m doing so because I want people to know about it.

But if I share personal news to a Facebook group of a few close friends, and one of them shares it with someone outside of the group, has a line been crossed?

It is possible to share a screenshot of a post with the person’s name blurred. But isn’t that still gossip? If someone is going to feel shame because a post has been shared, it doesn’t matter if their name is anonymized. The impact is the same.

There are far-ranging practical and emotional consequences to the material we share on social media that we need to be aware of before we create a post. It’s an issue that isn’t talked about enough, so I’m grateful to my panelists for discussing it with me on this edition of Quick Hits: organizational specialist Glady Baradaran; Genius Marketing founder Emma Humphrey; and business consultant Kevin Wash.

I hope you will share this particular conversation as widely as possible and include your thoughts on how social media and not being a gossip works.
