How can you deal with a breakup online?

Cupid’s Advice:

Osbourne used technology to communicate her feelings with her friends and fans.  However, the web is a public forum that must be approached with care.  Here are some of Cupid’s tips on dealing with a breakup on the Internet:

1. Personal boundaries: In an avenue that basically has no barriers, it’s important to have your own limits for the amount and content of the information you put out on the web.

2. Censorship: There are certain things that shouldn’t be mentioned in a public setting.  Avoid any of the “B” words: boys, breakups, bosses, bank accounts, and bodily functions.  Add any others you feel necessary, but basically, if you wouldn’t talk about a topic to a group of people you don’t know, don’t put it online.

3. Be true to yourself: You have the ability to create a whole image for yourself online.  This means you also have the ability to recreate your online identity after the split.  Revamp your profile, or tweet some inspirational quotes.  Keep yourself positive and moving forward, even if it’s just online.
