The catharsis of exhibitionism

Yet one more example of how digital technology makes life more complicated, even as it makes life simpler: Woman Accidentally Sexts Dad, Shares Drama With Twitter

It used to be that when you did something embarrassing (as we all have, at one time or another), you kept quiet about it, and it went away.

But in the narcissistic age of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagam, many find catharsis in wallowing in their faux pas where everyone can see.

Note to readers: If do accidentally sext the wrong person (not that I sext anyone, mind you) don't expect me to talk about it here.
