facebook timeline photographic violence, cancer 

Not sure how to cope with this: a friend's kid has developed a (treatable) lymph node tumour. The friend just posted a picture of said tumour — in all its ulcerated glory - to Facebook

Why would anyone do that?

@scruss Attention seeking. That's why. Which makes sense because they feel vulnerable, but I find it gross and a violation of the kid's privacy.

@arivigo thanks: something like that. The parent is now sending DMs to all their friends about "must-see tumour pics". No, no, nopity no.

@arivigo yeah, sadly.

I wish there were more "freedom froms" in software, rather than all the "freedom tos"
