It's extremely easy to share all kinds of information today. That's a good thing when sharing something important and meaningful, but there is also the downside of information becoming so abundant it's hard to filter out all the irrelevant.
It's nice to give status updates to the people who you care and who might be interested in your wellbeing. Especially in these kind of times. It's good to share your knowledge so others can also benefit from that knowledge helping them understand and do things on their own.
