I don’t know if I am taking it the wrong way but I find it weird that if i share something with people for example on FB, some will not comment at all but will send a private message congratulating me. Is there a reason why someone will not want to publicly post something to me versus messaging privately? I find it a bit insincere. Their private messages are sometimes super affectionate or super nice at least. 

Update- thanks for your responses! It’s nice to consider the positivity. The negative part took too much energy, so glad to see it lean towards the sincere part!

I think some people consider private messaging as more sincere.  Plus, if they're being super affectionate they may not want everybody else seeing that.  Yes, I think you're over thinking this.

Yes, you’re over thinking it. IMO a private message is more sincere than a public comment. The person who sent it is speaking directly to you and not trying to impress anyone  else or call attention to themselves.

Depending on the person and their history, you can normally tell whether it's sincere or not.
