You can see my sorrow on my face(book)

“She expressed her anger at how the incident was handled on Facebook.”

Did she express it on Facebook? Or did she get riled about a Facebook debacle, and tell a friend face-to-face? (Facebook, or face-look? For what it’s worth: In real life I prefer, when possible, face-look.)

I’m trying to figure out how many different ways this could have been written:

  • On Facebook, she expressed her anger at how the incident was handled.
  • She expressed, on Facebook, her anger at how the incident was handled.
  • She expressed her anger at how the incident on Facebook was handled.
  • She expressed her anger at how the incident was, on Facebook, handled. (This sounds like something from the Revolutionary War era, except for the reference to Facebook.)

Perhaps the only thing left to say is, I’m sorry you had an incident, and I’m sorry about how it was handled, and I’m sorry about Facebook being involved, unless it wasn’t.

I’m just sorry, all right?
