Several weeks ago, a friend posted on Facebook. It said one word.
There were several responses to the post. Asking if he was okay. Asking if he needed someone to talk to. Asking if they needed to be worried about him.
No response. Lots of people got worried.
Finally, it was confirmed that he was okay. It turned out that his "goodbye" meant, "Goodbye, I'm taking a break from Facebook."
When we communicate, it's easy to forget that the other person probably doesn't have all the context.
When context is lost, the message is misinterpreted.
And when the message is misinterpreted, it causes responses we never intended.
