Facebook ‘friends’

I read “Facebook thinks I should friend my therapist” [Aug. 26] with interest.

It is inappropriate to ask another person to alter their privacy settings on Facebook. That seems to me to be similar to saying, “I don’t want to see my therapist in public . . . he should stay home.”

If the author didn’t want to know anything personal about his therapist, he could have chosen not to visit the therapist’s Facebook page. The fact that he is now distracted by what he learned is his issue, not his therapist’s.
