Awkwardness ftw

Awkwardness happens when we expose something about ourselves in an unexpected or undesired context, or experience similar exposure of another person we know. (Example: finding that a cousin I don't talk to very often has set her Facebook relationship status to “It's complicated” when I thought she was still married.)

How can we avoid this by building smarter privacy and sharing tools? Is awkwardness always undesirable?
