Anyone *Not* put pics of their wedding on FB, or even relationship photos?

@LadyLuna711:  Hell no I don’t put stuff like that on Facebook.  It’s private – if someone wants to see pics they probably know me well enough to come to my house to hang out and see them.  

But then I’m a sporadic-at-best Facebook kind of person…I have like 90 friends and check it maybe once a week if that.

@LadyLuna711:  I use facebook all the time and very rarely post pics of me and FI.  We just aren’t the type of people who always have a camera around or even think about taking photos most of the time.  My friends are the ones who always want to take pictures so I have tons of pictures with my friends on facebook and probably like 20 all together with my FI after 6 years.  

With that being said, I just posted a few pics from the trip we just took where we got engaged and will post some when we get married.  Those are pics I would want my friends and family members to see.  But, I understand why you wouldn’t want to post them to facebook, especially if you’re a private person.  

I have gotten some flack from friends about not having a lot of pictures of us, but I don’t really care.  I’m just not into it.

@LadyLuna711:  i only change my profile photo and it is usually a picture of me and DH. But i didnt, and wont post wedding pics. I dont need people snooping and judging my pics.

I don’t post a lot of pics either.  I will likely post some highlights and favorite pics, but my FB friends do not need to see every single detail of the wedding.  The friends/family who would want to see the full gallery would already be receiving links privately anyway.  I already get flack for not having a lot of pics on FB, but I don’t care.

We don’t share much on facebook, a few pics here and there but that’s it. We only really have close friends and family as friends anyways.  Most of the pictures we do share, we have a special list for that only goes out to a handful of close friends/family who are interested in seeing our stuff.

I initially posted all of it, but I’ve since deleted all the albums except for one (and it’s just profile pictures).

I have one picture of the two of us on FB and it’s my profile pic.  But that’s because it’s the only recent photo I have of myself.  I tend to be camera shy so for the longest time I had a really old picture up.

I probably will end up putting up a few wedding pics, but I don’t have very many FB friends since I try to limit it to people I’m close with.  I also have pretty strict privacy settings (though I know with FB that really doesn’t mean much).  I’ll post a few just because it’s the easiest way to share with relatives.

@veryberry13:  i’ve reeaaalllyyy been wanting to delete mine.  You can only PM me on it anyways and thats the only time i check it.  But then i figured its the only way ppl can contact me if they dont have my number so i’ll leave it up and just stay off it.

I’m quite private too. I don’t think I have any “couple” photos up at all (I do post photos from our trips together, and a few of him.. but he HATES having his photo taken!). I did not announce my engagement on there.

I haven’t decided yet if I will post a wedding photo or not. I’ll likely be tagged in wedding photos. We have a small guest list so I may just ask them not to post anything on FB. I’d rather have some control over it haha.

I’m so bad at the whole Facebook thing. I never really loved it, so I hardly ever post. If I had something huge to post about, like a wedding (lol), I would though.

I have all my photos set to “friends only, no aquantences” (with some exceptions) so if I want to post, it’s not seen by everyone and their mother (literally!)
My total friends list is VERY short and my “friends” list is even shorter, “aquantences” is kind of longer haha

But my photographer puts some into a public album, everyone can see them, and to me that’s OK… he’s a friend and I’m glad to suport his business. I just wouldn’t post those pictures myself. 😛

@Swizzle:  WElllll I’m not the best at checking it.  One of my BFF’s and I mean we were VERY close moved from Florida to Colorado.  I randomly checked facebook one day and had a slew of PM’s from her.  The last one was where she said:  I have contacted you many times on here and you NEVER respond.  I guess we aren’t friends anymore and I’m deleting you from my Facebook.

WHAT?!?!

Oh I was heartbroken.  This ‘BFF’ of mine had my work email (we used to work together!), my private email, and of course–my phone number that STILL has not changed!  The only way she could contact me was facebook–really?!?

It’s one of the MANY reasons that I just figured, you know what, I’m done.

NOT TO THREADJACK sorry!!  TGIF I really need to get to work haha!

@LadyLuna711:  I dont have facebook… but if I did, I would have a picture up (as display pic?) with me and FI… and when married would prob put one up of us at our wedding – just to flaunt a little 🙂  But wouldn’t put all the pictures up of our wedding. Its a little tacky.
