Some random gyaan on spreading news, free of cost for you :)
Information dissemination is a skill worth learning, what to say, how much to say, and more importantly, what not to say. Is it okay to confide to a best friend, where everyone is someone else's best friend? "But I had to tell my best friend about it, and she promised she won't tell anyone".
Don't confide anything to anyone you are not prepared to publish in a newspaper otherwise. Just my 2 cents :)
