Ask Amy: Friendship falters on anti-vaxx posts

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: The writer signing her question: “Just Say: Get Well Soon!” said she had shared the fact that she was getting surgery on Facebook, but she didn’t like the fact that one friend queried her about the details.

Thank you for pointing out the obvious: When you post personal news on social media, you don’t get to control how people respond!

– Aggravated

Dear Aggravated: My own life without a personal Facebook presence (I maintain a professional page) has been a little less colorful, but a lot less aggravating.
