Grades are different...I don't know why. I've never seen anyone actually post grades. It's a little too nerdy. Maybe it's just because they don't have very much practical value and are strictly and solely an academic evaluation in and of itself, instead of an actual work product you created.
But I have seen people post scholarly articles they have written (like friends in PhD programs) or friends in journalism that link to their articles. Or friends who are photographers that have countless albums of their photos. Including one photographer friend who has won a couple of awards for her stuff, and posted the photo along with a link to the award.
Just because you want to share something with your friends doesn't mean you're some insecure braggart trolling for cheap praise. I think normal people generally share their accomplishments with each other. Which is what makes the law school attitude kind of perplexing. It doesn't last, though. My attorney friends post when they get a case dismissed, etc.
I'm not listening to kapital, though. I just e-mailed it to my core group of friends/family and left it at that.

Who said this would be offensive?
By saying OP would be a douche to post his note or a citation, you are saying that you or some other unidentified people would take offense to it. Otherwise, OP would not be a douche.
I am saying that people should allow other people to post their accomplishments on facebook without getting uptight about it. I wouldn't personally post my note citation on facebook because I know nobody gives a shit about it, but if that's what OP wants to do, it's not douchey.

Hey guys, is it OK if I post pics of me making out with this real live woman? I didn't pay her, if that's relevant.
