Are Facebook Confessions Good For The Soul?

Religious types say confession is salve for any injured soul. Yet more and more people are finding their way to Facebook to confess their transgressions.

“Sorry, Facebook for I have sinned….”

Confession, they say, is salve for any injured soul. Yet, interestingly enough, more and more people are finding their way to Facebook to confess their transgressions. Once upon a time, you would only read about “fauxpologies” from politicians who got caught with either their pants down or hand in the cookie jar. Now people from all walks of life are airing their dirty laundry for public consumption on Facebook.

Facebook confessing is a simple, non-torturous process, so far removed from being an upfront and in-your-face experience.
