BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com is sent private Facebook posts from HOA’s and country club communities on a regular basis — normally in the context of “you’re not going to believe what Betsy Shicklestein posted.”
The posts range from clueless to, well, clueless. There are major problems and issues affecting most of the world, yet local residents are asking why airplanes are flying low over Glades Road (why not google “Boca Raton Airport” instead of posting inane questions to Facebook?), announcing that a Boca home will be open and unlocked for hours as a family celebrates Shiva following a death. (We send to you our condolences at your time of loss, but honest to God, the only people who care that your loved one died are people who already know that your loved one died — why would you advertise that your country club home will be unlocked and open in a gated community?), and then those who are asking urgently what time the golf course closes and what the menu is at the three restaurants (why not call the office and ask for yourself?)
If there is a takeaway from the Cambridge Analytica story making headlines over the past several days, it’s that nothing you post to Facebook is private. Community groups. Private groups. Private messages. Not private.
Anything that you post can come back to embarrass you.
And true to our mission of snarkiness, we’re here to help that happen.
See something in your private groups that others need to see? Send us a screen shot — we’ll be happy to post it right here. Have a name for our new section? Send it to us at news (at) bocanewsnow.com.
