Blasting ex or bm on Facebook - generation gap?

Do you would you blast your ex or bm specifically on Facebook?
Every time I see someone post something like that I lose respect for them and think worse of them then whatever misdeed the other party supposedly committed. It is now socially acceptable to do such a thing? I get venting here and to your friends and privately but to me blasting on fb is like having a public fight it makes you look less than.

I don't even have a FB.  The reason is because I got sick of everyone else's petty drama and oversharing.  Back in the day when I did have an account, I never blasted anyone.  If I have a problem with someone, I tend to take it directly to them to sort out.  Peanut galleries are annoying.

No I think that's just ridiculous. I can see a vent here and there but nothing other than that.

My DH's BM does that to me all the time. Although in person she has said hi once and pretty much ignores me the rest of the time. So I am not quite sure how she talks crap when she knows NOTHING about me.

See that how I feel. There is a girl who in detail lists bf faults and has been co'ed to not talk about her ex on fb anymore. I gently suggested that if doesn't behave properly she needs to be the adult the good example and she was making herself look bad by ripping him a new one on fb. She acted like I was from mars. 'im venting to my friends'. Then call or text them if your are putting it on fb you are playing the pity card IMO.

I'm too much of a private person to air my personal business on something like FB. I actually don't even have an account. I feel like bashing someone in that way, makes me look bad, not them.

I may post a vague vent but no one knows bm and our business to know whether i post anything about her or not. My mom and sister and here are the only places I go to really spill my feelings. I agree calling people out specifically and arguing on fb is tacky
